How About a Major Tax Policy Overhaul that Could Actually Work? Introducing the Neutral Tax [Reader Post]

After a local Tea Party meeting one of my fellow attendees reached out to me and asked me to look over a proposal he had for tax reform. Given that this city has no shortage of people with grand ideas I was naturally skeptical. But then I read his proposal for the Neutral Tax, and when I was done reading I had just one thought… “What on Earth did this guy just say?” So I read it again, and it started to make sense. I didn’t share my initial reaction to disparage the Neutral Tax – it’s just that it’s such a different idea from anything I had read before that it didn’t sink in on the first reading.
