Taxation (work in progress)

I'll just be jotting down a few thoughts here, probably for a few months, on some thoughts for, what I believe, is a more fair and balanced tax system for America.

The current per capita or median income in America is approximately $25,000. The figures below are based on the 25k median income as being 100%. For example someone at 200% of median income would be $50,000.

50% to 100%, $12.500 to $25,000

100% to 200%, $25,000 to $50,000

200% to 500%, $50,000 to $125,000

500% to 2500%, #125,000 to $625,000

2500% to 10,000%, $625,000 to $2,500,000

10,000% and up. $2,500,000 and up

Obama Foundation

As I've just started this blog in January 2017, and also the Obama Foundation is beginning in January 2017, my first post is going to answer today's question from the foundation

From https://twitter.com/ObamaFoundation, "Make your voice heard. Tell us what you want the Foundation to do and be: obama.org/your-voice"

My first request, there will be plenty more : ) is that the Obama Foundation will be a recruiting and training organization for those who may be interested in a future of public service and/or political office. Also a place where those currently in office can polish and refine their progressive policies and how to present those policies in a positive and professional way to the citizens and voters.
