Opting Into Flat Tax?

The hearing on the hill yesterday about taxation took a major turn for me. If it’s optional, and folks want to try out the Flat Tax option, is that so bad?

Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), chairman of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on the District, held a hearing to talk about implementing a flat tax on city residents, which would be voluntary. D.C. residents could opt to remain under the current federal tax system.”

Sure, it still makes DC an experimentation zone, but this would, at least, offer informed consent to the patients.

    it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out … IF it turns out. part of me would rather do flat tax, part of me wouldn’t. more information, and an experiment is good.
