Oh, I thought this was about taxation. But really, it's just about the evils of social care and federal government.In my perfect world, there would be no federal personal or corporate income tax rates, but I'd be willing to pay into a workable negative income tax system to guarantee a minimum income. Of course, this would only be if the Social Security/Medicare/Medicaid/welfare superstructures were demolished, and the entire federal government re-worked. Being more realistic, I'd love to see everyone's rates slashed in half, with the federal government's budget reduced by more than half, starting with ending the War in Iraq, the War on Drugs, corporate and farm subsidies, etc.
Can I assume that you have an underlying issue with;
1) The Federal government is one problem, and this is a product of drawing a line you are happy with (city - state- federal -> net taxation for services will be roughly the same, depending on efficiencies of scale, except that you wish to remove one level and eliminate the services they provide)
2) Social issues shouldn't be provided/dealt with/resolved by government?
