The problem with income taxes today is that half the population don't pay any income tax; in fact, the Earned Income Credit has been expanded so much that many get paid by the government just to have kids they have no desire to support. Until everyone has "skin in the game," we won't be able to agree on proper tax reform.

I think this thread is still pulling Alabama through the mud. Can we get thread renamed or move the discussion to some other thread.
