Argument: Lifting poor with progressive tax is good for economy
- Debate: Progressive tax vs. flat tax - pro argument.
"Progressive Taxation". Lolife. 25 June 2004 - "With a flat tax, no one could be taxed more than they make, but the taxes would still have to be fairly high on the poorest people. With a progressive tax you can generate the revenue you need while still allowing poor people the opportunity to become not-poor. This is not altruism — it’s an economic strategy to keep our economy strong by getting as many people participating in it as possible. The more poor people we turn into middle class people the easier the tax burden will be on everyone."
