Dafatone: Linux_Yes: a flat tax would fix everthing and be much simpler, but the wealthy/big business folks would never allow that because then they and their high priced tax lawyers wouldn't be able to game the system.

Exxon: managed to profit 90 billion one quarter and didn't pay any taxes on it.  now that is talent.

A flat tax on what?

Also since the president was including in the fark headline, subby is a racist.
