The DC shuffle

Seen the headline?
House Republicans Pass Tax Reform Bill

I wish they'd quit trying to pass off what's being done in Washington as "tax reform." At best, it's a tax shuffling. You might call it a can-kick.

If it's reform, some of it goes the wrong direction. Fewer people will pay any tax at all. Fewer people paying anything at all means a larger pool of people who will vote for stuff knowing someone else will bear the burden of providing it.

They call it more progressive. Are those pushing this learned enough to know it was Karl Marx himself who pushed the idea of progressive income tax?
