Summary
Tax politics in the United States has been convoluted and socially irrational for decades, and if anything has generally been getting worse over the last 20 years or more. The pivot in the 2012 US presidential election toward recognizing that at least someone's taxes must increase is surely a welcome development, if still far short of what the United States needs, either to place itself on a fiscally sustainable long-term course or, in my view, adequately to address rising high-end inequality. The author considers it on balance unfortunate, however, that rate and base issues are getting tangled up together via the appeal of convoluted, distributionally selective base broadening
