A Flat Tax Is Not A Fair Tax

Dick Armery, a leader of the Tea Party movement, likes to say that the flat tax is a fair tax. This is not true. The wealthy have more opportunity to partake in our economic system and therefore there is nothing unfair about them paying more in taxes.

Further, a flat tax would be more fair if our economic system was operated as a truly free market. Presently, many of our markets are controlled by a small group of corporations that stifle competition and new entries from participating in the market. This concentration of power results from the refusal of our government to enforce anti-trust laws and the Supreme Court allowing unlimited campaign contributions from these large corporations.

We need to amend the constitution..
