GOP Tax Cuts In One Chart

Tax Policy Center scores of four Republican tax plans.

Kevin Drum

Awesome work from Kevin Drum who combines Tax Policy Center scoring of tax plans from four Republican contenders into one chart for easy comparison. Unfortunately, Rick Santorum hasn't been a big time candidate long enough to yet have his plan get tapped. The main point is that there's absolutely no disagreement among Republican contenders about the appropriation goals of tax reform—less revenue, and lower rates on the highest earners—Mitt Romney's plan is a much more modest version of the shared vision.
