The Flat Tax Ruse

This is very helpful in understanding how a flat tax does not create a more equitable system of taxation.  While it seems obvious on the face of it, the reality is that it is really just another way of putting the poorest in our society at a greater disadvantage while advantaging the very wealthiest in our country even more.  It’s terribly sad that advantaging the already advantaged is what we so often end up supporting without even knowing it.  Flat tax is yet another pop-philosophy that seems to be doing more of the same.
