You could be a Libertarian who's completely against taxes or you could be a leftist who wants high taxes. Let's be real, when it comes to the gov't you're rarely gonna get your way. You gotta make compromises. So, what if we completely cut taxes on everybody but, say, the top 5%? They already pay ~60% of total federal income tax revenue, and their average tax rate is ~24% (https://files.taxfoundation.org/20170201091804/TaxFoundation-FF540.pdf
(Page 2)). . What if we nearly double their tax rate and get the full revenue just from them? I think it could work because the lower 95% wouldn't have to worry about income tax and the gov't still gets its revenue. Everybody is satisfied in some way.
