I don't believe people living in an apartment should be taxed more than people living in a house. Convince me otherwise.

Never fear. If the people living in the apartment are earning, for example, $30,000 per year and the people living in the house are earning $50,000 per year, then a flat tax (10% for example) would only take $3,000 of the apartment people and $5,000 of the house people. The apartment people would be taxed less than the house people ($2,000 less to be exact).

Indeed. The flat tax is not bad, since it taxes people proportionately.

I think everyone should get taxed the same dollar amount. If it wasn't for the 1 percent, we would be living like the Amish.
