Some good points. But most people are aware, at least my clients are, that if you get rid of deductions or limit them you are in essence increasing their taxes. So if anyone thinks they can get rid of the mortgage interest deduction, limit even more deductions for charitable deductions and start taxing employer provided health care be ready for a really angry electorate come next election. And if Mr Sullivan is really naive enough to suppose that the so called Tea Party has more clout than American Business he needs to rethink. The so called Tea Party's influence is wildly exaggerated and to the degree that they and business have common cause OK but if there was a serious disagreement between Corporate America and the hand full of loosely affiliated individuals that call themselves the Tea Party congress knows who pays the bills.
