Topic: A real progressive tax that favours the poor.
Replies: 99
Views: 738

it's 1300 each month not each year. I know. Rent costs a fair bit each month, and then there's food and services, and entertainment is a need as well, unless you want to develop serious mental issues. Hopefully you don't need a car. At like $15,000 a year, that's not easy. Anyway, since you haven't...

Republic of Coldwater wrote:What about

0% for low
0% for Middle
0% for High

and 8.25% for Sales, it would work much better than some insane income tax.

In the Netherland the minimum benefit is 800 euro and with other benefits like housing and healthcare it can climb up to 1300 euro. ...right, so, pretty much nothing, then. And the problem is...? How does this not benefit the poor? How is this not a progressive tax? Why does it need changing? Becau...

We have unemployment benefits which makes working for people with low education not worth it. This is very rarely true. 33% for the lowest income. 45% for the middle income. 52% for everything above 52000 euro. And the problem is...? How does this not benefit the poor?

Eh, methane has an atmospheric lifetime of less than 10 years before it's converted to carbon dioxide. Since the resulting carbon dioxide is derived from plant growth anyway, it's carbon neutral; the steady-state methane concentration pushes up heat retention by a bit, but we're really more concerne...

This doesn't answer my question. When capitalists would be equally eager to eliminate religious persecution and the caste system, how can you present that as an example of Maoism? Nevermind the fact that India is indeed attempting to eradicate the caste system, though they could certainly be trying...

No, mental illness is something which causes distress to the victim. While fundamentalism might promote a lack of critical thinking, it's not mental illness.
