Trump has said he would simplify the tax code, the poorest would have a zero tax rate, and he would lower income tax rates. Good idea or bad idea?

The poorest already have no tax liability.

It's a good idea but where does he claim he'll make up the difference? Has he said how he'll tax the rich?

Lower taxes create more revenue overall.

Lowering taxes on everyone creates less revenue.

It's a better idea than Obamacare which the supreme Court has ruled a tax increase which affects the poor more than any other economic group.

How can anyone place credibility on anything that B.S. artist regurgitates.

Because of the two major candidates he is the only one who has not lied while under oath of office or to congress.

Who knows if he has or has not lied under oath he's been in and out of court most of his life.

Exactly. We don't know about him but we do for Hilliary

08/08/16 7:28 pm

But we do know he does lie.

Not to congress.
Not while holding high office

Cut out the B.S.! Trump spews lies like no other before him. He's a sociopath.

Trump has been in front of Congress before. lf his lips moved he lied. I hope he never gets another chance.

I would hardly call the daily beast credible

That's a fair criticism. Daily Beast leans left.

Considering we are 19 trillion dollars in debt it's not responsible to lower taxes and increase spending.

Historically, lowering taxes has increased revenue.

Overall a good idea, but the poorest should still have to pay taxes. We should all pay a low flat tax.
