Aug. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Last week, I wrote about the
nonpartisan Tax Policy Center’s effort to run the numbers on
Mitt Romney’s base-broadening, rate-lowering tax reform plan.
The numbers, as you may have guessed, didn’t add up. And that’s
not just a problem for Romney. It’s a problem for anyone
committed to the idea of tax reform.
As polarized as Washington is over tax and budget issues, a
base-broadening, rate-lowering tax-code overhaul has become the
one policy every wonk in town can agree on.
