Zacharias Quinn slowly rises and speaks intentionally, carefully anunciating his words.

"First of all, I'm happy to see that our fledgling government is taking rational steps and attempting to find a reasonable tax system for all hard-working Sankta Hildans. I am also pleased to note that the tax rates proposed here are not outrageously high. With that said, I am concerned that the proposed rates are high enough to place a burden on people who have limited means to bear it. In addition, I fear that the rather high proposed corporate tax may have the unintended consequence of stifling our economy and limiting career opportunities for the people of Sankta Hilda.

The people of our great nation work hard, and I think it behooves us, our people and our economy to let our people keep as much of their hard-earned money as possible."

Madame Speaker, for the context in terms of the application which the new taxation scheme will apply in full, I request the accesibility to the current taxation scheme in use, and the record of citizen income data, or data pertaining to the percentage of citizens whom earn an income within the various ranges outlined in this bill?

The Speaker consults with counsel.

"It is the chair's understanding that there is no taxation scheme currently in use, and that the government is currently operating on funds allocated the previous fiscal year."

Marius sat and listened to the initial criticisms. It was interesting that most complaints had come from the government's side of the chamber, the side that was required by the Confidence and Supply Agreement to vote in favour of the bill. Nonetheless, he supposed it was good that parliamentarians were staying honest to their policy standpoints. He looked around, and felt it was about time to stand in defense of his bill. Marius stood, and cleared his throat.

"Madame Speaker,"

Puertollano wrote:"That corporate tax rate is needlessly high. It will kill local business across St Hilda; and that's my most optimistic point of view. Or, alternatively, there can be tax subsidies for our agribusiness and agricultural sectors. That way we can make sure that our food is locally produced, that we keep our jobs here and that our farmers aren't left in the dark.

Thoughts?"

"I respect the honorable member's care for the significant matter of local agricultural industry. He should consider that the maximum corporate tax rate proscribed will only apply to large corporations, that do no work towards sustainability, and do not produce new jobs for Saint Hilda. Additionally, I find that supporting specific industries or goals via indirect funding routes like targeted tax breaks is inefficient, and builds towards a great byzantine treasury which is difficult for the public to hold to account, to the benefit of special interests. If the honorable member wishes to provide support to local agricultural industries, he should consider a direct funding method such as an actual subsidy, rather than accomplish such things through complicating the taxation scheme."

The Archipelago Territory wrote:“I agree with the honorable member. This bill is a socialist bill, not a liberal one. It tries to control the tax rate by forcing businesses to do things or else pay abnormally high taxes!”

"Madame Speaker, the term "Socialism" refers to a variety of economic and political models wherein the capital goods of a society are owned in public, collective, or cooperative ownership. The Rational Taxation Scheme Act makes no mention of capital goods one way or the other so to hang the banner of socialism on the act is nothing short of hard-right fear-mongering. The member, I believe, refers to the indicative planning methodology utilized in the corporate taxation section of the bill."

"Indicative planning, unlike directive/mandatory planning, is utilized in many free market economies, prominently France and Japan. In fact, non-universal tax cuts are common in many very right-wing governments. The only difference being that the indicative planning used in this bill is used not to support the extremely wealthy, but to build a sustainable future and grow the desperately needed job market in our economy."

Idzequitch wrote:"First of all, I'm happy to see that our fledgling government is taking rational steps and attempting to find a reasonable tax system for all hard-working Sankta Hildans. I am also pleased to note that the tax rates proposed here are not outrageously high.

The people of our great nation work hard, and I think it behooves us, our people and our economy to let our people keep as much of their hard-earned money as possible."

"Madame Speaker, I am appreciative that there are honorable members to the right of my position who can make known their concerns in a reasonable and principled manner. The honorable member will be pleased, I am sure, to hear that the tax rates proposed in this bill are actually much more forgiving in terms of personal income than the rates our citizens were paying to Sweden prior to independence, so the member could reframe his thinking that this is in fact a tax cut for those who need it."

"As for corporate taxes, small businesses that build the foundation of our economy can attain a rate as low as 10% of net profits if they are willing to work towards the goals we as a society share. I am confident that this bill will not be found overbearing to the good, hard working people of our nation."

"I should further like, madame speaker, to draw attention to Section 3, Subsections a, b, and c, of this act. The opposition has been absolutely right during question time to raise concerns about this government's plan for social welfare going forwards. The establishment of a negative income tax model is, as I see it, an ideal solution. Those people who find themselves in need can rely on the safety net of a negative income tax rate at the lowest levels, but there is no incentive to stop working permanently. There is no way, in this scheme, for an individual to be punished for earning their own income."

"I do not believe this government has an alternative solution to social welfare, and I have not seen concrete proposals from the opposition either. The Rational Taxation Scheme Act gets it done, Madame Speaker."

I agree with my colleague on the potential abuse of social welfare, but also that the potential that the tax burden may actually reduce the incomes families, causing them to enter poverty. Although I am awaiting data with further information, generally $100K is not considered wealthy in most places, especially in western European countries that Saint Hilda is similar to since another taxation is prevalent. Another negative effect that is seen is that families who have a higher expense but do not meet the threshold for assistance also suffer with these types of systems. I believe that a system is closer to a flat tax for earners above the poverty level to be initiated. What is more commonly an issue that leads to tax evasion, is the sheer complexity rather than rates. Therefore, I believe we should be looking to eliminate loopholes, as well as hidden charges. In turn, if we are able to attract more businessmen here, we will then have a higher tax income. In a way, a balance might be more effective. We need to have our tax rate that is low, but also provides enough income. In the end, if we are business friendly, this will benefit people since this will provide jobs that will weaken the burden on social services. My main issue is not applying to the larger chains, but to small businesses, because in the end they will end up suffering from the tax burden because they would have to be paying higher wages, because of increasing costs.

"The corporate tax rate and the income tax rates in this bill is a little high in my opinion and should be lowered. We want to bring businesses to Saint Hilda, not chase them away. I will not support this bill until these changes are made."

Alastar comments on the rational tax scheme bill.
"I like the fact that there is a progressive tax and we have some tax cuts but the corporate tax rate is a little too high. Even if they are large corporations they are businesses that have to earn their profits so they can pay their workers, operations and reinvest the company. Also I might say the bottom tax bracket for workers earning $15,000 to $30,000 for 20% should be reduced. They are working class folks and they should try to be not taxed as much with the jobs they have."

My second question is the following: has the minister considered making provisions for local taxes outside of central government taxation?"
