We would eliminate all tax exemptions and eliminate the power that Democrats have abused repeatedly over the last four years.
We would still have the most progressive tax system in the industrialized world.
The brackets would remain. But every worker, not just 53 percent, would pay federal income taxes.
People would pay income taxes on Dollar One, just as they do for Medicare and Social Security.
My plan would greatly reduce the number of employees in the IRS, but no one would lose his job.
I would simply re-deploy the employee to perform the tasks the federal government has failed to do - after proper training, of course.
For example, federal agents had not inspected that fertilizer plant in West, Texas, that exploded this spring for 28 years.
Would an inspection have prevented this explosion? Until the cause of the explosion is determined, I cannot say.
Instead of inspecting workplaces, the government is harassing its critics.
Let me make this clear: I like government employees. Over the years, I have encountered nothing but dedicated employees who want to serve the public.
Those of us in the private sector could learn from them. For one thing, cashiers could stop yakking with their co-workers when they are taking my money.
But government agencies such as the IRS have too much power that is abused by the petty people above the line employees I encounter.
