My example was fictitious as to the actual numbers. But directionally, it's correct: until RMoney lets us know what deductions he's going to eliminate, we can't know whether we'll pay less, the same or more in taxes under his plan. He seems to be concentrating on the "you'll get lower tax rates" part, but is kinda quiet about the "but you won't have as many deductions" part. Why is that? He must know what deductions he plans to eliminate, because otherwise he wouldn't be able to calculate that his plan has zero impact on the deficit!
I wish conservatives could be a little more suspicious of politicians who want their votes.
