Oh, I think they know. There are too many negative consequences to doing it though.
If they do the flat tax;
How do they reward their friends when they are no longer able to hand them a tax loophole(give them their own money)?
How do they reward their campain and super pac contibuters?
How do they control which business' have the upperhand if they cannot give breaks and subsidies to one while fully taxing and regulating the other?
How can they give incentives to buy support for some laws and punish those that go against them?
These are just a few questions that need answers before something like a flat tax has a chance to be implemented.
