I propose a flat 15 percent federal income tax on any amount over $10,000 a year. One third of the income tax goes to the government, to pay for essential government services, one third of the tax goes to Social Security. The remaining third to pay for health care. "Guest Workers" would pay 10 percent as they cannot participate in Social Security but could partake of health care. The flat tax would only apply to new income, not income that has already been taxed. Inheritance tax would be eliminated. The vast majority of surpluses would come from budget cuts, by eliminating unconstitutional programs and spending.
