Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has released his official tax platform. While I am no fan of the Donald, this plan is better than what Jeb Bush or any other candidate has released.
Here are the key points, in Trump’s words:
If you literally get to send a piece of paper saying “I win”, that’s hilarious.
The plan is a good amount of common sense and it isn’t very ideological either. It keeps progressives tax rates but eliminates the gunk that harms growth, and it has things liberals and conservatives should both like.
However, I’m not sure that it would be revenue neutral. We’ll let scoring agencies estimate that. But one way or another, it is far, far better than what we have now.
