Poll your acquaintances about what income tax bennies they're willing to give up. Start with the mirror.

My mirror tells me: all of them, in exchange for a flat 10% tax rate that everybody pays. Very close to the top of your 100 million reasons for our complexities is the politicians' penchant for using our taxes for social engineering. This is done generally with the best of intentions, sometimes for buying votes, always counterproductively.
