Sounds like a good idea.

That's the "new conservative" approach for the Bannonites. I would expect it could go through. Gives Dems something they want, gives Trump's base a tax cut. Keeps corporate America off Trump's back and the stock market likes it. Tosses decades of conservative mantra out the window, but it seems like the conservative movement has been pretty effectively body-snatched, so might as well raises taxes on the rich. Interesting to see the responses here.

Me, too. If anything, I would keep the tax rate the same for the rich, decrease taxes for the middle class and increase taxes on the poor.

We're a long ways from having the ultimate solution, which is a straight up flat tax.

Maybe an Edward I tax:

"I need X for project Y.

Project Y means we don't get invaded, by guys who will need to take your land as reward for their supporters.  In which case you are dead.

You people are under my protection. How much are each of you willing to pay, and what do you want in return?  Oh, by the way,  'under my protection ' means I can kill you."

That is the democratic platform. Sounds good to me.
