Why “progressive tax brackets”?

I ran into this when arguing with folk about the FAIRTax. They claim the brackets and exemptions on certain amounts are unfair.

They’re sorta right, but not entirely. See, the brackets are a substitute for expenses.

A flat tax without any deductions or other breaks is comparable to a business paying taxes on gross income. It’s really that simple.
