ENGINEERING ECONOMIC VITALITY FOR ALL
How do we
build a nation
that's a better
place to live for everyone?
The answer will surprise you!
Here's How it Works
Today we tax the $20 trillion per year in income we earn. We should not tax income. We should tax the $7,244 trillion in payments that occur each year instead!
If we taxed payments instead of income, your tax rate would drop to 0.2%, we'd have a $2.6 trillion annual surplus and we could afford the following benefits for all citizens.

The New Benefits We Can Afford
We could pay every adult citizen in America a basic income of $24,000 per year, which would increase to $30,000 at age 70.
Earned Income Credits
We could provide earned income credits to increase the income of citizens earning less than $30,000.
We could provide free basic healthcare for all citizens.
We could provide a free college education for everyone.
We could implement Banking 2.0, funding startups, cutting the cost of mortgages, and profiting from international finance.

The table below shows the new budget with the above benefits. With a 0.2% payments tax, we'd eliminate the need for income and FICA taxes, and we'd have a $2.6 trillion budget surplus.
