Reader feedback: Flat tax hurts

Re: Flat tax favours business, By Marta Ďurianová, October 6 - 12,2003, Volume 9, Number 38

The VAT flat tax of 19% on everyday goods sounds like a rip-off of the common person. This will be more out of people's everyday money spent on staple goods.

On the flat income tax: Does anyone know the percentage of people working in the incomes that will be affected? I mean, what are the various income scales of people now? Who will this affect the most? In what pay category?

I can probably guess. I think the ones making all of the big bucks should pay the higher tax. After all, they are the ones making all of the money that is indirectly coming from the lower class. And let's not ever forget that, no matter how some people put a spin on it to make it seem otherwise.

Let's face it, the rich are the ones who make the laws.
