Why would you want a flat 20% tax when you only pay 5%

Report as

You would not. Unless the flat tax results in increased jobs, economic opportunity and a "rising tide," it's not worth the change for more than 60 pct of the population.
But if it does result in a jump in economic activity, it's potentially a game changer. Review the list of countries with a flat tax, and see which ones are economically vibrant; those with rates under 20% are quite healthy, including Hong Kong. Most of them are developing capitalist former Communist countries. This is somewhat deceptive, because those countries make money by selling their formerly state-owned companies.
