Can Gravel answer a question without first criticizing someone? My money says no. And as far as abolishing the income tax for a consumption tax is concerned, is it just me or would that aggravate the situation? If there is a poor family who spends every cent they earn, living paycheck-to-paycheck, wouldn’t they be taxed heavier as a percent than someone who is rich and doesn’t?
I think Hillary was best on the tax issue. Reforming the payroll tax would do more to help the working class than anything else.
