49. Rather than criticize .....
..... what ideas do people have to make it work? I personally hate the IRS and income taxes. Talk about a screwed up system. There are so many loop-holes and twists and turns in the present code, I think that it is time to do something.

Maybe just a good cleansing purge of the current tax code? Start over with straight-forward income tax with no deductions, write-offs, etc. Sure, the congress will riddle it back up with loop-holes and shelters ....... over time. But, for a few years at least, it can be made somewhat fair.

The problem I have with INCOME taxes is that it hits working people ... not wealthy people. The really rich in this country don't need or have income ..... at least not income that is proportionate to their wealth. We need some sort of tax code that really taxes the truly wealthy and exempts the poor and working poor.
