We just need a more simplified tax structure than the politicized mess we have now. To many "Obama-exemptions", confusion, evasion, avoidance, IRA threats. More people go bankrupt due to tax problems than just about any other reason. So if you try to legitimately pay your income tax and don't have the funds, you are much worse off than those that don't pay income tax at all - the other 50 percent (the takers). Why would anyone want to work and get ahead under that model when you can have a decent standard of living not doing it?
