Repealing would be great, but until then.

My system would encourage people to work more to reach a higher income. If a person earning $2000 a year pays 50% income tax, then it is likely they receive government assistance, and if this is the case then they need to pay a greater percentage of their income for the benefits they receive. If the income tax is incremented to go down with each increase of income of $500 by say 1%, then by the time a person earned $20,000 a year they would be in the 14% income tax bracket. From there on out anyone earning over $20,000 could pay say a 13% flat tax to say $50,000, from $50,000 to $100,000 would pay a flat tax of 10% and anyone making over a $100,000 would pay 7%. This system stimulates peoples to earn and claim to earn more in order to pay less as a percentage of their income.
