"The Ryan-Camp Tax Reform
But there is another, different, Republican middle class income tax cut already in the works in Congress. House Budget Committee
Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) proposed in his 2012 and 2013 budgets, both adopted by the full House, individual income tax reform with just two rates, 10% applying to families earning less than $100,000 per year, and 25% applying to families earning over $100,000.
Those are the average effective tax rates paid at those income levels today, which means that in theory enough deductions and loopholes could be eliminated to enact such tax reform on a revenue neutral basis."
The challenge for us FairTaxers is to overcome the apparent momentum for simply rearranging the deck chairs on this Titanic.
