At one point, I calculated that i worked 80-hours/week.
I was terribly disappointed to find that if I worked twice as much as others, I didn't get to take home twice as much pay, due to the tax-curve. So, there is a dis-incentive to work more.
Ever since then I have held a firm belief in a flat tax, if any.
My posts only speak of an idea of how things should be, not how to do it, through socialism or whatever.
I hope I have not become a target in a game of whack-a-socialist-mole.
