Why? Because we need the tax policy equivalent of Law & Order: SVU.
“We need something that is very far-reaching, very dramatic,” said Ross, the head of W.L. Ross & Co. “An idea I’ve been in favor of is to scrap all of the corporate income taxes, all of the individual income taxes, and substitute a value-added tax on all goods imported into the country and manufactured and consumed here, and then rebate it on exports.”
Oh and that jobs bill? It’s bupkis:
“The amount being put in relative to that plan, compared to the jobs they say it will produce, is way out of whack,” Ross said.
