A modest proposal on political scandals

Scandal tv logoHere’s a modest proposal on political scandals. When a politician is indicted, then taxes are reduced equivalent to his proportional representation of the people.

The reasoning is this: He was corrupt, therefore he wasted tax dollars. So citizens shouldn’t have to pay any more for his corrupt actions.

Currently, three California state senators are in hot water on corruption charges. There are 40 state senators. And 3 out of 40 = 7.5 percent.

Therefore, across-the-board, all taxes should be cut 7.5 percent for 2014:

  • Income taxes cut 7.5 percent.
  • Sales taxes cut 7.5 percent.
  • Car taxes cut 7.5 percent.
  • Property taxes cut 7.5 percent.

It’s only fair. And a rebuke to a system that has coughed up so much corruption.
