It "only" takes in $1.2 Trillion (one number he mentioned) to $2 Trillion (the number his interviewer mentioned) in income taxes each year.
"Why not give the money to the people who can really use it?" he asks. "Let's get rid of the cronyism and the fat-cat paybacks. . . ."
I kind of like the idea!
