There is no power in simple fair taxing. You also don't get to pit groups against each other. The way we have it now you let groups form and then lobby for a special carve out. Then that group can support raising taxes they don't pay anyway. If it was simple and there were no groups, there would be less reason in electing A over B and no reason to donate money to A over B. This tax is certainly aimed at creating a lever for power. I only hope people see how it sucks when it happens to you and stop pushing for policies that use taxes to influence behavior.
