    We need a flat tax. People who are paying the federal budget don't receive proportional representation under progressive taxbrackets. They are not represented equally, but they get stuck with more than their share of the bill. Obviously this has caused the budget to oscillate out of control.

    Equal representation is the feedback loop which prevents budget runaway. We either need a flat tax or weighted ballots. You pay 5% tax? Your vote gets 5 points.. You pay 35% tax? Your vote gets 35 points. What we have now is people voting themselves benefits from somebody elses wallet. Duh.
