What this propaganda does not say is that the current system benefits millions of households. It benefits those households of married couples where the husband works, brings home oodles of dollars, and presumably votes Republican, and the wife stays home and paints her toenails. This view of what families should be like is the basis of the current rules. You will note that if the little woman goes out and earns something, her first dollar will be taxed at 31% or whatever is the couple's marginal rate. Therefore, it's hardly worth it.Of course, the questions of the wife's sense of self-worth, and what skills she will have in the case of death or divorce, are not considered.Once I become King (this will require several Constitutional amandments) everyone will fill out individual tax returns.
