I’ve already discussed on Marketplace Money that the tax problems of Tim (Turbotax) Geithner and former Sen. Tom Daschle are arguments for serious tax reform and tax simplification.
In the meantime, maybe it should be law that anyone in Congress and the White House has to do their own taxes. No professional help. No accountants. That might be an incentive for tax reform.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
