President Obama needs to lead on tax policy
Management by avoidance
A big beef that I have with Democrat politicians is how 1) they say the right things; 2) don’t act on anything. You see action puts one on the record as having tried and succeeded or tried and failed.
President Obama’s management by avoidance is a problem.
“Three years into his presidency, Obama has not introduced a plan for comprehensive tax reform — arguably the most important vehicle for fixing the nation’s finances and boosting long-term economic growth. His opponents haven’t done much better, but that doesn’t excuse the president’s failures: appointing the Simpson-Bowles commission and then disregarding its findings, offering a plan for business tax reform only, and issuing a series of platitudes. The Buffett Rule, rather than overhauling the tax code, would simply add another layer.”
