House Republicans just released a tax-cut plan that meets the nation’s needs — and in a less bitterly partisan world would win major Democratic support.
It offers the relief for business and the middle class needed to get the economy roaring, while arguably increasing the progressivity of the individual tax code.
There are goodies for middle-income taxpayers, too. For example, the lowest bracket, with a rate of 12 percent, has an upper limit higher than the current 10 percent and 15 percent brackets. So many middle-income taxpayers would see their rates drop.
