Wes Clark vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays

Clark's Tax Plan Leaves Out Dual Income No Kids and Singles
General Clark acknowledged that many of his plan's benefits would not flow to married couples without children or to single taxpayers.

Jeffrey Liebman, an associate professor of public policy at Kennedy School of Government at Harvard who appraised the Clark plan at the request of the campaign, said it would remove 3.2 million Americans from the tax rolls. About 31 million families would get a tax cut, he said, roughly 86 percent of all families with children. The average tax cut for families with children would be $1,044, Mr. Liebman said, while the average cut for families without children would be $99.
Let's see some more details of the plan.

It's strangely similar to Sunday's Simpson's episode of Marge vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays (#FABF03 / SI-1503)

There's a discussion about Clark's Tax Plan over at the Clark Community Network.

Clark also wants to add another tax bracket:
He would also add a new tax bracket of 44.6 percent, which he said would apply to the top 0.1 percent of taxpayers.
Now that's just plain wrong.

I can't favor a tax plan where almost half of your income goes to taxes.

I'm totally against a progressive tax system and in favor of a flat tax.

We did it in Iraq, why can't we do it here?
