Sen. Brownback embraces a flat tax in his 2008 presidential bid

BY Matt Stearns

Remember the flat tax? The policy proposal gained traction among conservative politicians for a while in the 1990s, but it withered amid little real-world political support. Now it's back, as a fiscal policy cornerstone of Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback's campaign for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. It calls for earned income to be taxed at the same marginal rate, unlike the current system, which has different tax brackets for different incomes. Typically, proponents of a flat tax call for eliminating most deductions except for a sizable individual exemption.

Tax Code Is Recipe For Pitfalls, Cheating

BY Matt Kibbe

Saturday is April 15: national lawbreaker day. Everyone could be a criminal on tax day because of the sheer size and complexity of the federal tax code. At more than 9 million words and growing, the tax code is a leviathan of potholes, pitfalls and disasters waiting to happen.

On Tax Day, $125 Billion in Waste

BY Matt Schumsky

Another dreaded April 15th – Tax Day – is nearly upon us. Our annual tax ritual requires over 26 hours from the average person filing a standard 1040, and over 60 percent of Americans seek professional help. The reason: The U.S. tax code now exceeds 60,000 pages, and those pages often give conflicting advice. No wonder that in 1976, presidental candidate Jimmy Carter declared, “Our income tax system is a disgrace to the human race.”

Scrap the Tax Code

BY Matt Kibbe

April 15, national lawbreaker day, is around the corner. Everyone could be a criminal on tax day because of the sheer size and complexity of the federal tax code. At more than 9 million words and growing, the tax code is a leviathan of potholes, pitfalls, and disasters waiting to happen. Special interests have long fed at the tax code trough, getting clever exclusions and deductions added to the code while you and I break pencils worrying about if those late-night copies constitute a business expense or whether mileage can be deducted from our taxes. Who knows? Unless you like pouring over indecipherable tax forms, instruction booklets, and the attendant guide books published by the tax consulting industry, you will probably never know for sure if you've paid the right amount this year. You might just be a felon.

GOP Conservatives in U.S. House Offer Cuts to Help Balance Budget

BY Mary M. Shaffrey

In 1994, Republicans won control of Congress by touting their "Contract with America." Twelve-years later, conservative Republicans, angered by the growing budget deficit and increased pork-barrel spending, proposed massive budget cuts that they say will help balance the budget by 2011. "House conservatives believe we must return to our 1994 roots of fiscal discipline and reform," said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, a group of more than 60 conservative members of the House who wield some influence within the party.

A Flat-Out Winner for Tax Reform

This op-ed originally appeared in The Washington Post on Thursday, December 22, 2005 The report issued last month by President Bush's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform landed in no-man's land. The right was disappointed that its proposals were so timid, and the left was critical because the report highlighted the damaging impact of high tax rates on work, saving and investment.

The Return of Voodoo Economics

BY Thomas E. Nugent

When then-Governor Reagan was behind in the polls to then-President Carter, he announced his support for major tax reform and advocated tax cuts to stimulate economic activity. And we all know how that turned out. Reagan’s association with the supply-side economic ideas of Jack Kemp and Arthur Laffer may have very well been the catalyst that propelled him to victory in 1980. When President Reagan actually proposed major tax reform that included tax-rate reductions across-the-board, his critics labeled the plan “voodoo economics.” Another derogatory term, “trickle-down” economics (meaning the benefits of tax cuts for the rich would eventually get to the poor), characterized the economic and political world’s disbelief in the dynamic effect of tax-rate reductions.
