Wow, I never expected to support a commission created by George W. Bush and headed by John Breaux and Connie Mack - but if the dreamily dangerous flat-tax brigade and the cruel and callous national sales tax squadrons don't like the commission, maybe something good can come out of it.
The man is clearly an idiot. Nice catch.
i seethed while reading the same interview yesterday morning. i knew the estate tax numbers were off, or at least didn't support the whole save-the-farms bulls*&t, but where he really killed me was where i didn't need to call upon old information, statistics, or really anything but common sense: his unbelievably blithe reference to borrowing indefinitely against our progeny's economy . . . that's something more than callous indifference. it's closer to criminal negligence.
the guy wouldn't survive one shareholders' meeting as a board member of a public company making statements like that, and yet he's the one the president tapped for tax reform?
i'd say i can't wait to see his interview with Ali G (speculating; i know of no such, but wouldn't it be fun), but i'm thinking i already read its equivalent.
