  1. No kidding.

    “GOP’s Proposed Tax Changes Are No Match for Status Quo”

    It’s interesting that by far the most lucrative thing to cut would be the exclusion of employer-provided health insurance, which would presumably reduce the number of employers offering health insurance.

    This is WSJ article that I’m linking to on Google Docs.

  2. Thanks, RMS for figuring out a way to post WSJ articles for non subscribers to read. I think that a corporate tax bill with significant international tax reform could get through Congress. A repatriation holiday would generate enough revenue for it to score as neutral. I don’t think much in the way of individual tax reform will make it through.

  3. “cut … the exclusion of employer-provided health insurance”

    I’ll have to come to this later.
