The truth is, most of us don't pay income tax. In fact, the wealthy pay more than their fair share, but no one wants to say that.

Most of these changes, help a little here, hurt a little there and is basically just a bunch of politicians wasting their time moving money around.
You want to fix Washington? Level the tax playing field, figure out a number that everyone would have to pay to fund the government (5%, 10%, 20%, 30%.....) and nail that target on every working person's back. Then see how much support for additional taxes like for Obamascam, etc. there REALLY is when it's coming out of everyone's pocket as an equal percentage.

You want to fix it? Make the only "official" income tax that which is needed to run the government - military, courts, etc. Salaries and goods (no welfare, no highways, etc.) that number is probably around 12%.

Make everything else an annual pledge, if you want to pay for welfare, Obamascam, etc. you can volunteer a payroll deduction for that. You can also choose zero. See how "generous" people are when it's their own money being wasted.
