Obama's Tax Plan

I've been following the campaign pretty closely and I have to say...Obama's not just impressing me with his star power lately.

I liked what he had to say about Iraq, but this is a substantial domestic proposal that fundamentally upends Reaganomics, supports the lower and middle class earners, and brings the act of filing your taxes up-to-date.

Wow. This is really good. Course, getting it through Congress is probably a non-starter, but I like the thinking.

One could only hope Congress shows some leadership and nerve. It's unlikely, but I've heard not ENTIRELY without precedent.

That, of course, is a matter for when/if Obama actually becomes President.
