I'm afraid! I'm afraid a Republican tax plan could coup d'etat the United States and destroy what little middle class remains. Given 4 years of Romney/Ryan is the U.S. setting itself up for a massive untaxed exodus by those w/means??

Before you get too worked up, remember that nothing can change unless Congress votes for it and that isn't likely no matter who's in the White House. I would love to see the tax code simplified (kill most deductions and loopholes, flat rate income tax, etc.) but the special interest groups will never let that happen. They pay for the campaigns so the politicians will never bite that particular hand.
