Happy Tax Day!

We generally try to keep politics out of this blog, but today is a special day, Tax Day.  There is no question in my mind that we have a broken tax system.  It is far to complicated, convoluted and confiscatory.  I have often joked that we should pass a constitutional amendment that would require all members of Congress to prepare their own taxes long hand.  Only then will we get meaningful tax simplification, which would make our economy stronger and more resilient.

I strongly support these protesters.

I sincerely hope that by the time my kids are taxpayers we have a tax system that is simple and fair. I won't hold my breath.!
