On Regressive Tax Policy"There are plenty of obvious fixes: We can stop taxing money that goes mostly to the rich, like stock dividend and capital gains, at lower rates than we tax the earned income that most of us work for and live on. We can start taxing the wealth of multi-millionaires at least as much as we already tax the homes that are the main source of wealth for the middle class. And we can restore a reasonable estate tax on the many millions that get passed down from a great, great grandfather to an heir who lives off the inheritance. The smartest states are already moving to make their tax codes more progressive."
