  •  Is there really enough unearned income (0+ / 0-)

    to make up for that whopper tax cut for upper-middle class and wealthy working families? Are there loopholes by which top executives could now transfer back what they once transferred into differed investment income into earned income in order to pay less taxes? This sounds like it would slam the working poor and lower middle class workers, handsomely benefit higher income workers and probably not make enough income to maintain the stats quo. Most "flat tax" schemes are "reward the rich/soak the poor" programs in disguise. So far, I haven't seen a remotely workable one that wasn't.

    Jon Husted is a dick.
