Republicans will lose elections, until they re-brand themselves as the party that encourages the productive. For those that pay taxes, a booming economy will mean higher tax payments at lower rates. For those that do not pay taxes, a safety net that does not disappear means that effective tax rates never go higher than 25%, offering a path out of poverty for the productive. The primary beneficiary of a new tax code should be the productive middle class.
Even the Founding Fathers were only politicians until they created a plan that turned them into statesmen.
