Rick Perry, The republican governor of Texas, proposed a flat income tax of 20% on all Americans as well as a balanced budget plan that will go into full effect in 2020. You don’t need to talk taxes with me for very long to know that I support abolishing the 16th amendment and replacing it with a federal retail sales tax. However, that will never get through the political process. A compromise could be reached that does exactly what Gov. Perry says. I would strongly support Gov. Perry’s plan to cut taxes for all Americans, balancing the budget and spurring economic growth in the private sector.
