I like your income tax proposal.
What's your opinion of the Negative Income Tax? i.e. replacing means tested welfare programs with a cash benefit.
What about lowering the corporate income tax and raising the capital gains tax?
Cap and Trade, Carbon tax, or nothing?
What's the best solution to fixing the coming deficit to Social Security and Medicare?
Should the Internet be classified as a common carrier?

Hi Jimy it's good to hear from you. We have "Negative Income Tax" already it's called Earned Income Credit and I see no reason to do away with it. It helps poor families the most. Is there a corporate income tax? I heard a lot of companies aren't paying any for some reason. At one point 70% of the money invested in the stock market was middle income earners. I'd say we want middle income earners to invest in businesses so I would look into lowering the capital gains tax. Besides the capital gains tax affects inheritances.
      I believe the cap in the cap and trade program was set up to set a limit upon the carbon monoxide emissions coming from your factory output. The Government would tax anything after the cap was reached and you could trade off credits with other companies emitting less carbon monoxide. Most of your biggest carbon monoxide producers are the utility companies, right? Utility companies are the presidence for the Affordable Care Act which turns over the authority to tax people to multiple companies. We live in an age where these companies misrepresent the power they have over us as a society which is neither here nor there but I would seriously look into doing something about it. Here is my train of thought. If you have a company using wind power and solar power their emissions would be smaller and they would have tax credits to trade. The cap should probably be lowered periodically adjusted so to say so as to encourage the biggest polluters to stop. 
     The best solution to "fix" Social Security and Medicare is paying young people more money for less work. Payments into the program are based upon a percent of young peoples' pay. If that isn't livable then the money they turn in for their retirement won't be livable either. Minimum wage has got to go up and the Reganomics policy of not taxing the rich in order to raise all boats is not working and needs to be stopped. 
     I'd like to keep the internet freedoms in place. If you limit peoples freedom of speech by charging them extra for certain web areas and monitoring their activity it only spells trouble. Just like the Public Library the internet belongs to the people who use and not a handful of companies.
Manifesto finished and like I said it's good to hear from you.
