This iReport is part of an assignment:
Your vision for America
My vision of a great country
The way to turn the economy around is to get money into the peoples hands not big companies or banks. The bail outs didn't work because the banks used that money too make more money for themselves then loan it to people who needed to buy homes, cars or things they need to live.
Somehow we also need to generate jobs. Without jobs people can not spend money so the economy doesn't grow.
To reduce the deficit I propose that we go to a flat rate tax with no deductions. That includes anybody from poor to rich and also businesses. You pay a percentage of what you make no matter what. Businesses would pay the tax quarterly and people it would come right out of their pay check. This would allow the government to reduce the IRS by a good amount saving money.
We should also tax businesses that use overseas call centers and that do manufacturing overseas. Hopefully this would force businesses to bring those type of jobs back to the US.
Next we would have to cut the government. Why to Senators and Congressmen have to have so many aids? Let them start doing more leg work and don't tell me they can't.
One last thing is that people have to realize that those $20 to $40 a hour jobs no longer are available and they need to re-think that a $10 to $15 a hour job will put food on your table. You can not live on welfare, food stamps, and unemployment for the rest of your life.
