Imagine a family. They were poor before, but now they are broke. They don't know how they're going to survive. Now Imagine one person, cruising in his private pool, surrounded by gold and riches. He doesn't even have to give that much away! And why is this happening? Because of a Flat Tax system! WE should NOT use flat tax. Some people do not have much money, and some people are rolling in it. Would you take that only money they have using a flat Tax? Think about this while my opponent responds.


The United states of America has one of the most progressive tax systems in the world.

With a flat tax, a family with a income of 23,000 dollars will pay less then under the tax system we have today. A flat tax will get rid of deductions , loopholes, and a lot of taxes and replace it with a 28 percent tax for everyone. Poor families and rich people will pay the same rate. Now under the current tax system, a poor family will pay more then under a flat tax.

The effects on the economy will be beneficial. Business will grow. It will allow them to hire new people.
Revenue will increase because without all of those deductions and loopholes, the wealthy will pay their fair share.

I will wait for my opponent's response!
