ResN says: Yes, they would have to pay SS and Medicare just like everyone does now. Easy as pie
-----------------------------------------------------------------------.

Not exactly, the SS wage base ends at 117K (2014) and S corp and LLC flow through income is not subject to employment taxes.

We have a flat tax now for all income over $457,600. The flattening of the tax code (ya know to protect the job creators) over the last thirty years has led to income inequality.

busman-not trying to defend the tax code but a flat tax would screw most Americans
