  •  The actual rate is irrelevant. (0+ / 0-)

    For our purposes Social Security Tax is regressive, not flat.

    The proportion of your income that you pay decreases as your income rises above the threshold.

    "Flat Tax" as promoted by the Right is a very different animal to that which we are discussing here.

    Under that plan, the actual rate of income tax is very low, or even zero, with the entire budget being made up from non-income related taxes ... like sales tax.

    It's not accurate or helpful to introduce the term "flat" to this argument.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.
