Wesley Clark’s Tax Reform ‘Fairness’

January 10, 2004

In response to Wesley Clark’s “Real Tax Reform” article in the Wall Street Journal of January 9, 2004 calling for more “fairness” in the tax code and the AMT, at least we now know exactly where Wesley Clark stands on equality: As long as the minority is a small enough voting block, it is ok for the majority to force them to pay for whatever that majority wants. So much for the goal of equality under the law. Leaving the AMT in place with low limits actually has a benefit – it is essentially a flat tax, but with a rate higher than it should be.
