Simplest thing the USA could do, is scrap all local sales taxes of all types.
That's never going to happen. If they could do that, they would have done it by now. The public, cities and states all start crying about the constitution and how the states are supposed to control their own income, blah blah blah. Some guy in NY says... "Why is my tax as high as somebody in Texas, where they have lower living expenses?... That's not fair!"... on and on. That's why nothing is ever simple here. People would rather see the whole system crash and burn, than make even the smallest sacrifice. And in the end, they usually get something far worse because of it. Like this.
