Morning Scepticism: Flat Tax

A flat tax would only serve to exacerbate income inequality and has no redeemable features. It's not a fair system as it puts a disproportionate burden on those who don't have disposable income. It's been a nice trick to convince people on lower incomes that the problem is the free-loaders at the bottom rather than those hoarders at the top, the complaints of unfair taxation of the prosperous means putting the burden on those who aren't.
