To solve this problem (title of the post), here's how. Put a sales tax on all purchases (i.e. fair tax). Sure it may be higher, but damn, we have to make the people working under the table pay their fair share some how. No more income tax. This is not a new idea. Honest people are taking the blunt of the bill. If you cant stop the illegals, and you can't stop tax evasion, change the system so they don't get an advantage. Its like a business. You have to react quickly. We have to stay ahead of the curve. Once we put this in place, we have to be quickly ready to react again. There will always be loop holes, and we can't be too naive to react before these loop holes are discovered. Manipulation is a tool of the rich. They know the honest (middle class and working poor) will work their selves to death to do whats right. Shouldering the price of the people that are riding the system. There is not just a war on the rich here. There is also a war on the free loaders (not the truly poor). Please understand that riding the system is only making things worse. You have to understand that you are fueling the fire. The question should always be, is the rich trying to manipulate me and the American people????
