How do you shift yet more income from the lower ends to the upper ends of the wealth distribution.
Well you could eliminate the sales tax deduction.
The Bush administration’s plan to overhaul the federal tax code includes eliminating the state sales tax deduction…
There are the old classics:
… shield interest, dividends and capitals gains from taxation, expand tax breaks for business investment …
But how’s this for a real block buster?
…scrapping the business tax deduction for employer-provided health insurance, …
That should bump a few million people off the health insurance roles.
Nation building is so much easier if you lower your baseline.
You typoed “scrapping,” repeated “bump,” and singlewordified “for employer.” I’m leaving this as a comment because while I hoped to get your email address from your technorati profile, when I click that link I get some warning about how civilization is going to collapse and everything I know is wrong.
My favorite part about the new Bush tax plans is that they’re being sold as “revenue-neutral.” That’s such a nice way of saying “transfer the burden from billionaires to you, and keep screwing your children just as hard.”
