Retweeted by Rick DeVos@Locs_n_Laughs #SoMuchHate #RagingAtEverything@devodc0 Nope!You want to end a specific tax credit? The rhetoric quickly becomes: "YOU MUST HATE CHILDREN" or "YOU MUST HATE BUSINESS" etc. And it works.This second part makes it easy (esp. with today's politics) for entrenched interests to confuse, demagogue, and bog down any reform efforts.2. Decades of using the tax system to achieve specific policy goals (incentivize this, dis-incentivize that), with its obscurity an asset.Primary obstacles are: 1. A large, entrenched industry that is very interested in keeping things complicated ($$$ to navigate it for you)Can we all agree that it's time for radical tax code simplification? http://t.co/N22oJXbULuEver gone out for a nice little sail on a Hobie Cat and suddenly found yourself in the water?

Good Lord it would be good.If you get the casting and production right, people would go absolutely nuts over it. And there is craploads of material to work with.HBO or Netflix: Please make a high quality period serialization of The Count of Monte Cristo.Everything within the Narrative, nothing outside the Narrative, nothing against the Narrative.Ain't no chair like an Eames Lounge Chair.@JeremyBergwerff Terrible.
