Your Call 062909 What is the best kind of tax?

What is the best kind of tax? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the convoluted U.S. tax system. It's also incredibly controversial with many Republicans signing the "no new taxes" pledge. We pay taxes on just about everything we buy. There's income tax. Property tax. Gasoline tax. Is there a tax you'd actually like to pay? Do you think certain taxes should be raised? Send us an email at or join us live at 11 am. What should our tax system look like? It's Your Call with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.
