" Trash the entire CURRENT Tax Structure (incl. ALL exemptions)"

Another example of "REPEAL & REPLACE" huh?

Didn't work so well for the Republican Party on healthcare Just like opening a Constitutional Convention- You might hope they will fix something until you find out they just want to wreck it all.

Tax Cut Plan???? Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. The simple fact that Mnuchin and the other billionaires want this plan is sufficient reason the middle class should say "NO"

" Institute a Consumption Tax (both wholesale & retail)" Isn't that the opposite of stimulating the economy?

" the ONLY exceptions being
◦Declared National Emergencies (President declares) and Declared Wars (Congress declares); and
◦Requiring the exceptions be paid back IN FULL in 10 years (from cessation)"


The war in Afghanistan has no end

Congress no longer declares war too much blame and accountability

That war on drugs didn't get the "NATIONAL EMERGENY" declaration so I guessing many national problems will not get the money needed to solve them because of that loophole.

Noel,

First things first ...

If it's codified (i.e. Placed into law) then it's at least easier to enforce (not that it will be but it's supposed to be);



"Another example of "REPEAL & REPLACE" huh?"

Well yeah, but isn't that the same as "changing a law that already exists" (like what happened to the military draft)???? It's just a slightly different approach to it.

---------------------

"Tax Cut Plan???? Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. The simple fact that Mnuchin and the other billionaires want this plan is sufficient reason the middle class should say "NO""

Not if you actually WANT a Tax Break. And another thing, if you re-read my original post, I DID vote "No".

---------------------

"" Institute a Consumption Tax (both wholesale & retail)" Isn't that the opposite of stimulating the economy?"

Well, for starters government has to pay for itself somehow; Second, w/ a single tax rate on EVERYTHING, then nobody gets a break; and Third, you can please some of the people some of the time, some of the people none of the time, and none of the people all of the time.

Well, if it's not "Declared as a National Emergency" or a "Declared War" then it better be budgeted, otherwise it doesn't get funded. And then in that case, maybe Congress will be forced into getting off their asses and doing their jobs. Nothing wrong w/ that. And if Congress/President doesn't want to do their jobs then "We, The People" will have another reason to stand up and say something (which won't be a bad thing either).

And "Yes", if "We, The People" are made to do their duty as well, I'm all for it. It's about time they were actually made to tow the line (WRT their civic duty) and hold their elected representatives to account as well.
