Ben Carson on Taxes

Carson supports a flat tax, which he likens to the concept of “tithing” found in the Bible.

JOURNALIST: “You made what I thought was a really deep and really interesting point, basically on behalf of the flat tax. You said, 'a just system would tax people at the same rate across the board.' Can you elaborate on that a little bit?”

BEN CARSON: “Yeah, well, of course, you know, I alluded to God. And, you know, he said 'I want a tithe.' And he didn't say 'if you don't have any money, don't give me any tithes,' and he didn't say 'if you're the richest man in the world, give me triple tithe.' So, proportionality. That's what's really fair. A percentage. And by definition, if you're a billionaire, you're gonna pay a whole lot more than somebody who is poor. And that's fine. But I think everybody should put into the pot, everybody should be a part of the equation, everybody should have skin in the game. If God thought that was a good idea, I don't see why we think we're smarter than he is.“
