Any politician who presents a “better” plan for collecting taxes or tax reform is never in a million years going to decrease spending. There is no such thing as tax reform when borrowing and spending is too high. Such being the case, I guarantee that any new system of taxation will favor groups with the greatest political power and work to the disadvantage to all who have little or no representation. Support a new plan for collecting taxes and you are agreeing to additional spending.
Spending is the problem. Creative ways to collect taxes cloud the issue.
