Will you benefit from Perry's flat tax plan?

Gov. Perry says his flat tax would eliminate taxes on capital gains and dividends. CNN's Tom Foreman looks at the numbers.

    Why can't we have a two tier flat tax system: one for people making $200,000 a year or les at a vey low flat tax rate and one for those earning more than $200,000 a year at ahigher tax rate?. Maybe even a 3 tierr tax rate could be implemented for those earingin between $200,000 and $500,ooo a year.

    Where are the brave thinkers and doers who have the answers. Nothing proposed now is the way to go.
