"The great debt debacle in Washington is over –- for now. One idea that was punted for later consideration is tax reform. ... The issue was too politically hot to handle, yet talk of tax reform doesn’t always have to spark a beltway bonfire. Here is an idea that should find common ground and one that immediately yields to common sense: Simplify the process of preparing tax returns by shifting the burden from the individual taxpayer to the government itself." [editor's note: This actually makes a little sense; at very least, it would remove the fiction that paying taxes (aka "tribute to the King") is somehow "voluntary" - SAT] (08/02/11)
