Letter: A simple, yet impossible solution to the national debt
Everyone should petition (insist) on a complete overhaul of the existing unfair tax system. Establish a straight predetermined percentage of gross income with no exceptions or loopholes. The government, including our unrealistic Congress, must be able to assure every U.S. citizen will be paying their fair share. This I feel is the way to have all taxpayers feel that they can make a contribution to paying down our debt.
