(1) Incentives to tax-payers for tax prepayment (early birds), e.g. rebate or discount coupons for shopping, or governmental bonds;
(2) Higher income cashflow by more frequent tax payment by monthly instalments for the same amount that previously paid annually;
(3) Lowering taxes for successful re-entrants to employment market to stimulate more taxation incomes;
(4) Higher taxes for monopolized or near-monopolized businesses, and globalization players that have capitalized much on industry export.

You're putting the cart before the horse

Agree to the underlying principle, and we can discuss the finer details. If people want to find reasons to shoot down any idea, they'll do it. But it's harder to shoot down an underlying principle.

Ah. I didn't make myself clear.

I'm in agreement with the underlying principle. It's just that I've seen too much legislation passed at various levels that left the details to be determined later.

I even more strongly support the notion of a balanced budget amendment. But let's get really freaky and mandate Congress pass an annual budget, even an unbalanced one, before Oct 1st or else not get paid until they do.

What a novel idea. How long has it been?

I read Pametto's comment three times looking for a reference to an ANIMAL budget. I wondered what he had said that got you to see an Animal Budget as a novel idea. Yeah, I need glasses, but so does everyone who asks an optometrist. I never got that part, why would I ask a car dealer if I need a car? Why ask a Realtor if you need a new home? Why are optometrists allowed to conduct eye exams instead of a non biased third party? Don't get me started on DOCTORS! They always say you're sick and sell you more drugs. I think there should be a doctors training facility for recommendations only, then another to sell drugs to you.
