The powerful are happy to let us pay insane taxes on dubious Big Government. Funny how unwilling they are to do the same. Is this scandal a tacit admission that Big Government is over taxing EVERYONE worldwide? Is this proof that the government is a corrupt entity that deserves as little power & money from people as possible? I see this as a powerful argument for a flat tax. The current world tax structure is onerous and complex. A flat tax does away with all of that. Buy a a product or service and you know exactly what the tax is. Why not make filing taxes just as simple?
