Campaign: Legislative Branch

Republican ideas welcome.

SSA employees are mostly union and democrats. So this SAVE award is asking democrats for their opinions.

Business owners/self-employed individuals, creative types, (republicans) could share valuable insights too.

Change the tax code and laws!!!!!

Right now in the US we all are taxed based on our income. As we can see this does not work because half the people who pay into taxes get refunds and end up paying nothing in, and those who are at the top of the ladder end up having so many deductions they can do they end up paying nothing as well. Not forgetting there are also people who just do not report taxes at all. I ask that we change or tax code up from one ...more »

Income Tax Policy Reform across the board

Do away with the upper class millionaire and billionaires that only pay taxes on the first 100K of income? It is not fair that the middle class struggles b/c the rich get a huge tax break and don't contribute their fair share. This is a policy change and would eleviate the debt and no longer protect special interest groups. This is the only way equality can be reached across the board. if this doesn't change, the ...more »

IRS / Flat Tax

Dismantle the IRS, impose a flat tax; shrinks the size of the Federal Government, simplifies the tax code, saves unfathomable amounts of paper (goes green), saves taxpayers countless hours of frustration and wasted time, saves money, increases tax revenues. This historic change would be lauded for decades. Stand up against the lobbyists that would try to block this historic and transformation advance.

IRS overload - show me the money

Examiners of all disciplines ( International Revenue Agents, Engineers, Economists, Financial Products) should make a video of their most non compliant issues - not naming taxpayers of course. Or explain the process of auditing large corporations including the appeals process. List how difficult the tax law has become. How long an audit of taxpayers with over $10 million assets takes an IRS team. Get the public on board ...more »

Federal Income Tax

Most if not all American's hate paying federal income tax and would love to eliminate federal tax, but what is the answer? The answer is to establish a federal lottery commission similar to what most states have such as the State of Texas. This would require the establishment of a Federal Lottery Commission to manage and oversee this effort. Most individuals would argue that this establishes another federal agency requiring ...more »

Flat Tax and Reduce the IRS

Create a flat tax for everyone with no loop holes, exemptions, or tax breaks.

Reduce the size of the IRS by at least one half of current staffing, associated offices, and vehicles.

This would create a vast resource of monies for government and remove the associated bureaucracies that weigh this great nation down. It would be a very positive step in getting our nation out of the massive debt crisis.

As of today, 100,000 tax preparers have fail to the new registration requirement imposed by the IRS.
