Sure,
say a flat 50% of all income, regular, capital gains, inheritance.
It would give the government the ability to provide free education, free health care, and generous pensions to retirees.

Or we could use the Donald Trump Proposal of a onetime tax on net worth over ten million, at a rate sufficient to pay off the national debt.
Sort of a like a bankruptcy, the wealthy get a haircut, the country gets a clean balance sheet.

So 50% is enough?

Was it suppose to be equal? I don't recall anything that says, those that do, should give up enough to make those that don't equal. If you are not paying into the system maybe you shouldn't expect anything from those that do pay into the system.

This is a perfect example of the failures (or successes) of our education system. Communism has failed how many times leaving how many millions of bodies in its wake?

Yet here they go yet again begging to give it another try.

What did Einstein say about insanity. Communism and socialism have never worked anywhere but, we should keep on trying? Just how insane is that?!

And the incentive to expand circles the toilet bowl. Think...STAGNATION!! Which is what that will produce. This country was built on personal responsibility and ingenuity needed to keep this country moving forward. The Federal government doesn't produce jobs or the incentive to innovate, people do. And that is because of personal reward. The only haircut needed sits directly in Washington D.C.. That glutinous PIG needs to be put on a diet.

Flat tax shifts tax burdens to the low and middle class. It's a give away to the wealthy.
