    ... want contradictory things. And, accordingly, vote for them all the time without seeing any conflict. Tra La!

    We are not going to get meaningful tax reform because the interests who put all those many and varied provisions in the Tax Code are going to fight for every one of them, tooth and nail, and threaten electoral Armageddon.

    About the only chance of success is something across the board (think sequester-like slashes) OR some new, invisible, evanescent tax that the industry it hits is willing to accept and the Republicans and complicit Democrats can be beaten back on it (think, a larger financial transactions tax).

    And the chances of either of those in the next few Congresses? None to Below Zero.

    There just is no way to be optimistic about tax reform in this environment.

    2014 is HERE. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
