Not too high

I mean someone making $60,000 will be taxed $9,000 a year from their income check. Outside of a National Sales Tax of 4% won't be other taxes.

With that income a single individual would pay $2,000 less in a tax year and a married couple pay $500 more in a tax year.

That's way too high.

The federal government should have severe cuts made reducing its spending and reach drastically.

Still individuals making $30,000 or less are not taxed.

Singles will pay 20% less a year with income taxes

Married will pay 5% more a year

Hopefully can erase the debt and build savings with the National Sales Tax.

9000/60000=15%

Would those individuals not paying taxes be prohibited from voting?

No paying taxes, no vote.

That way EVERY BODY pays their "fair share". Even drug dealers, and others, would pay when they buy their Mr T gold and Cadillac Escalated etc!
I would do a national person tax for everyone over 20, and a state sales tax.

I agree with the idea of everybody paying in.

Could be set up:

Income is taxed at 10% for income from $0 to $30,000. Then 20% from $30,000 and up.

A National Sales Tax of 4%.

Erect a toll booth at the end of every residential driveway and entrance to any privately owned land, you get a ticket once you enter the public road then pay when you leave it and get back onto private land again based on how long you have spent and how many miles you have travelled.. That's a sure way to cut back on all that wasteful tax bureaucracy.
