President Obama has declared that the standard by which all policies and policy outcomes are judged is fairness. He declared in 2011 that "we've sought to ensure that every citizen can count on some basic measure of security.

Well written and well researched. The author makes some great points and logical deductions, however, there are times that the author allows his bias to get in the way of preventing facts. Overall, a good read.

Very informative and more interesting than you would expect from this sort of subject.
Unless you've been living under a rock your whole life, you're probably aware that tax policy is at the core of most arguments coming out of Washington D.C.

Awesome book, quite easy to read for someone without much economic background. The author presents lots of historical data in the text as well as using graphs and tables. He also provides interesting background on a number of things without straying too much from the main topic. Personal opinions of the author are clearly stated as such. The book is very well written in general and the last two chapters bring it to a great conclusion.

Mostly political & was written in a way that dates it to 2012 - during the political campaign. Still the info in it is valuable, as is the mind-set. Worth reading. (borrow my copy)
Very good read. Now to go back through and review the numbers again.
