Raise taxes, lower taxes

It might be a decent idea on paper, but once something like this makes it through Congress there’s little chance it would actually increase the amount of money any corporation pays. After the spectacle we all watched in 2009 over health care, I don’t think many people have confidence in the sausage-making process to turn out something edible.

On the other hand, this is unlikely to even get a fair shake in Congress this year, so it’s just campaign pablum. At least he’s supporting an increase in the effective corporate tax rate in his pablum.
