Regardless, don't be fooled.

A flat tax is still repugnant to Constitutional precepts, and does nothing to get the federal monkey off our backs and out of our pockets. The ONLY direct tax authorized by the Constitution is apportionment among the States; NO direct taxes upon the People. In fact, reading the Constitution as a whole, it can be said the Federal government is to have zero direct interface directly with the People, other than through the States. A flat tax will maintain our unconstitutional status as a Nation State, rather than a Nation of States. Repeal of the 16th and 17th Amendments is the only real solution.
