Ted Cruz: Abolish IRS and move to a simple flat tax
The now infamous Ted Cruz statement on the abolition of the IRS, and introduction of a flat tax system raises at least a couple important issues. While many fiscal conservatives are undoubtedly salivating over the possibility of making this dream come true, the problem still lies in the concept of whittling down government in an environment where both sides of the aisle are arguably addicted to spending. Flat tax always seems to sound nice, but yet again, this is not necessarily something that will work if implemented. But, it’s always nice to sit back and enjoy a statement about something we all wish could come true easily.
