Totally disagree. or any disability has become a career choice. just because you are unable to do the job you used todo, it doesn't' mean you can't do something. Way too many folks are milking the disability system. Can't work because of a bad back but you can ride a motorcycle and add an addition on your house. We nex to streamline the definition of disability and cut the money WAAAAY back to get these folks to work.
Last week, the progressive think tank Center for American Progress (CAP) released their tax reform plan [pdf], supported by prominent left-wing budgeters and economists like Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers. The net effect of this tax reform plan is a massive tax hike on "the rich" in order to fall far, far short of the revenue necessary to eliminate America's deficit.

The CAP plan would eliminate deductions, close loopholes raise rates, implement new taxes, increase sales taxes, create new taxes... basically every form of a tax hike you can think of, all implemented on households with income above...
