Ho hum. No point in any presidential candidate promising something as radical as a flat tax: it requires having a majority of Congress behind it as well. What he should say is that he’ll fight for a flat tax.

Ron Paul (I think it was) has it right: the income tax is a many-headed hydra, and it has created a HUGE industry in itself. If we make the income tax simple there will be legions of tax accountants and lawyers very, very unhappy. Unfortunately, they have the lobbyists and we, the taxpayers, don’t.
