But it's a fantastic start. Until I realized this exemption for people making $50,000 and under, I was pretty disappointed in what sounded like at least a 10% federal tax increase on everyone. Since around 55% of American households make less than $50,000 a year, this would clearly lift a burden on more than half the country.
Oh yeah, and how about closing some departments! As for Social Security, I can see how unpalatable it would be to try running in 2016 on a platform to end Social Security ASAP. People's minds have to remolded first.
