Five Reasons I Don't Support Any Tax On Income

1) They increase the perception government is free to a wider audience.


I remember in 1999, Steve Forbes stated the average family of four wouldn't pay taxes on the first $34,000 under his flat income tax proposal.  Every plan I've seen (I haven't seen details of either Romney's or Ryan's tax plan; only an outline), has a higher initial exempted amount to counter claims they would hurt the poor.  By doing so, they are extending the number of people who believe…
