The proposals for personal income taxes do nothing but re-arrange the furniture... with the exception of the elimination of state tax exemptions. The change there is that it is not merely a random alteration - but one which provides more equal taxation for all Americans. That is a worthy change.

The argument that the States impacted most already pass a greater share of income back to the Federal government is untrue. That greater share is passed back by business interests, not personal taxpayers. You may not grok why that makes a difference, but if you don't... you probably shouldn't be in the conversation.

Changes to Corporate taxes are the essence of the tax bill. The only real issue. They amount to a gamble that changing the fundamental notion of taxing Corporations at all should be challenged. Since taxing the hell out of them has left us $20T in debt - with declining job opportunities and a lagging economy... no serious person can suggest that continuing to tax and spend in the same manner is even remotely viable.

In effect, there is some real attempt at trying something new... covered with all the sugar necessary to get the children to eat their vegetables.

I doubt that any version passable will be healthy and constructive. Americans are sugar junkies lacking the discipline and resolve to do themselves any good. I continue to see the unconstrained government ultimately hitting the inevitable wall.
