History lesson: Reagan's 1986 tax reform

Raised corporate taxes, closed loopholes.

Truthfully, I’d actually be happy with a flat tax given that currently the lower down in class you are, the higher taxes you end up paying thanks to massive loopholes the wealthy exploit.

  1. I guess it depends on who proposes it, and how it works. The flat rate state income tax proposed by the frosh Repub in the AZ lege (read “tea”) will raise the tax on the 98% of AZ citizens who report less than 200K in income, lower it for the other 2%. When that fact got out for public reaction, he tabled it, said he’ll try again in 6 months or so.
