I wouldn't tax business at all. It's the final customer that pays the bulk of this bill, anyway, in the form of higher prices.

Acknowledging that you weren't the one who raised the issue of fairness, how is it fair that the wage slave pays x% and the self-employed shopkeeper pays bupkes?

This is, BTW, pretty much the scheme they're headed toward in Kansas. Oddly enough, because of the way Koch Industries is structured the Koch brothers won't pay a pittance in state income tax any more.

I'm sure it's just a coincidence.
