Senator Mike Crapo is proud of the “bipartisan advisory panel” on taxes for this stunning achievement:
For example, one proposal reduces the schedules, forms and worksheets related to Tax Form 1040 from 53 to 10.
Wow, what an achievement. The Flat Tax reduces it from 53 to 1 and the Fair Tax from 53 to zero and we’re supposed to be impressed at reducing it from 53 to 10? But then these are Washington bureaucrats and politicians, so we’re lucky they didn’t “reduce the rate of growth” and call 75 schedules, forms and worksheets a “cut”.
