My problem with McCain:
McCain doesn't like progressive taxation (that's clear from his plan which decreases
progressivity and his attacks on Obama's proposal to increase
the progressivity of the code). In general contours, McCain prefers something approaching a flat tax. But why should people who earn more
be required to pay more
in taxes? That's unfair. It's also clearly redistributionist. Instead, we should have a head tax - a fixed amount per person per year*. This crazy notion of taxing a percentage of someone's earnings punishes success, etc.
I don't understand why McCain hasn't been called out for his immoral, socialist, redistributionist stance on taxes.
* Even that's redistributionist. People should make only a single payment one time in their life. Why should people be punished for being successful (i.e. living longer) with a head tax assessed each and every year?
