4. The US is $15 trillion in debt. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle recognize a need to start shaving down the debt. Raising taxes is one option. Is tax reform necessary, and if so, what should it look like?

Income taxes need to be raised in every income bracket. The federal government provides lots of valuable services and funding and could provide even more things, like free college education.

There should be a flat tax rate on income, no matter how much a taxpayer earns.

There should be no taxes at all. Private corporations can provide the same services the government taxes the citizens to provide.

We should increase taxes on the wealthy, while the middle class receives tax cuts. The rich need to pay their fair share.

Our existing tax rates would be fine, for the most part, if the government were a bit smaller. We should reduce taxes on the wealthy and corporations to encourage innovation and investment.
