I sure wish we could all just pay the same tax rate on every dollar earned or unearned from 0 to a gazillion. It would make things a lot simpler.

A lot of productivity is wasted structuring income to be tax-advantaged like dividends and capital gains instead of interest because it's taxed at a lower rate.

If we could just tax everything at a single, low rate.
