    Aren't these flat tax proposals based in part on the Forbes plan? This degree of honesty and candid evaluation is surprising coming from Forbes.

    Refreshing -- it used to be, at least when it came to financial data, Forbes and WSJ would tell it like it is. Now, WSJ has become too much of a right-wing mouthpiece, and they will aggressively push financial plans that make no sense. Elective tax. Pah.

    Good. It's about time people called out the Republicans on their fiscal irresponsibility. They claim to be all about it, but the reality is- they never have been.

    As much as Forbes may directly benefit from electing as many Republicans as possible, there must eventually come a moment where after enough bat**** crazy, guano starts spilling into your hip waders.

    20 percent would do the job, since historic averages are revenue at about 18% of gdp. Also, the simpler tax code would save a lot of money. It's sad that our government can't get the job done w/ 15%
