Cut military spending by a lot and adopt a european tax system (denmark, finland, sweden, etc.) we would be able to afford almost every financial problem by cutting military spending.

No, there are so many renters that are priced out of owning homes and don't qualify for property taxes because of that. Property taxes should be raised on those that rent out their property instead.

It all depends on how much property tax is being reduced. Say the government DOES reduce property taxes and increases sales taxes, if you're gonna increase sales tax, property taxes should be reduced TREMENDOUSLY. If we have to pay more for whatever we buy they can at least reduce a good percentage.

@93Z7RPZ from New York answered…2mos

No, property taxes are the only form of tax where increased tax revenue is directly tied to appropriately used tax money (roads, hospitals, services, etc.)

Yes, but reform to a flat tax, abolish all taxes except sales tax, and require payment/ tolls for use of federal services to make them self sustainable (roads, parks, postage, etc.). Tax collection funds services that can't charge (law enforcement, military, congress, etc.)
