How about some skin in the game

TYLER — Here we are on Tax Day.
And still those with the song of the rich not paying enough taxes. Never mind the fact half of the country now doesn't pay taxes.
Maybe it's a stretch, but I believe it's many of those folks hating the so called rich for not paying their fair share.
I've been looking at all the cable news programs today and that's the talking point- make'em pay their fair share.
Well, I think taxes should be used to bring all Americans together. You see the tax code we have right now is too complex. And that's the way a lot of government pencil-pushers like it. But, I say a flat tax or a simpler tax code.
When I was a kid I didn't understand why we didn't take more elaborate vacations. I wanted to go everywhere the commercials on TV told people it was cool to go. Of course, I was a kid not realizing my parents, just like most of your parents, were busting their tail just trying to pay for the things parents pay for, plus thinking about one day I would need to go to college.
Its analogous to what's going on right now. One group saying others need to pay more, so they can have a better life. I say lets have all Americans have to pay a little if not more than a little.
Get some skin in the game. Then, let's see how everyone likes it.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
