Subject: Tax Reform NOW

Comment: When your horse trips and breaks its leg you shot it, you don’t stand around and wonder if it will turn into a dog. The current tax system is a horse with three broken legs and congress is still waiting for it to turn into a dog. Why not try something BOLD? Why not use a bell curve to figure the average amount a taxpayer needs to pay and have them only pay that amount? If you take and remove the top and bottom 10% of wage earners and figure the average from the remaining 80% and work with that as the amount each person needs to pay to run the country.
Now I wonder if this will be read or if this is a Federal whitewash and goes into a trashcan? The first step to change is to do something different.
