So I had this totally unreal conversation with one of the staff members at the clinic yesterday. Now, I don't make a ton of money, but I make about three times what she does, and she's explaining to me that we need to have a flat tax across the country--one in which I would essentially cover LESS of the national tax bill. I was arguing that I *should* pay more because I've benefited from the system and more of my income is disposable. Really? What is wrong with this picture?
