    [Republican presidential candidate Sam] Brownback instead sought to emphasize his fiscal conservatism and his support for a flat federal income tax, with no deductions or credits. He said taxpayers could choose to stay in the current system or shift to the new one.

    Yes, let’s add another completely new tax system to the current one. And force every single taxpayer in the country to calculate their taxes three different ways (progressive system, AMT, and flat tax).

    Fortunately, Brownback has a zero percent chance of winning, so this trial balloon will die a timely death.

    BTW, he was preaching to the choir homeschoolers.
