"Only billionaires support this" I call bull on that comment. I'm nowhere even near a millionaire, I'm quite reasonably middle class, and I do support it. That's the thing. I want those richer then me to remain successful, legitimately. The flat tax is meant to help push people up the monetary ladder and not push anyone down. The only people it hurts are those who cannot help themselves, such as people who are addicted to drugs and can't stop buying them long enough to get out of poverty. The only reason so many hate the idea is they're to lazy to go at it themselves and make their own living and not waste money of their own or others to the point they are impoverished.
