  •  There's a name for that, it's called the Flat Tax. (1+ / 0-)

    not a cent

    ...and right-wingers have been pushing for it forever.

    The only problem with it is that it would utterly screw the poor and benefit the rich, while simultaneously bankrupting the nation unless we also added a 28% national sales tax (on top of all state & local sales taxes) as well.

    •  Flat tax isn't asymptotic, nor is it a curve (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      I mean a continuous, rather than stepwise, version of a progressive tax rates. T=r(I)*I where dr/dI is a smooth, rather than stair step, curve.
