I think we should stop paying large corporate farms to NOT grow things, I think we should tax ALL income as income, I think we should return tax levels for millionaires to previous levels of 40%. I think we should eliminate any cap for Social Security taxable income. It'd do a lot more for the economy than your usual anti-union rhetoric.

Or how about this, since everyone has a stake in the game how about a head tax, that is the fairest tax since we all have just have one vote.
