Here is an interesting essay on a non-partisan "tax-wonk." It is actually possible to make a living reading and analysing the foot notes to corporate financial statements. Glad someone is willing to do it.
“What politicians keep forgetting is that you can’t ‘partner’ with the corporate community when it comes to writing the tax laws,” Sullivan explains. “They’re not partners — they are adversaries.”
If you truly want to get the big money out of politics, a flat tax system may be the only way. Just saying.
