Quotation for Today: Tax Laws Embedded With Economic Inequality

The quotation for today, on the other side of the jump, emphasizes the economic inequality embedded in the tax laws of the United States.

"So Mr. Romney’s tax dance is doing us all a service by highlighting the unwise, unjust and expensive favors being showered on the upper-upper class. At a time when all the self-proclaimed serious people are telling us that the poor and the middle class must suffer in the name of fiscal probity, such low taxes on the very rich are indefensible."
Paul Krugman
