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.

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. If you've ever dived into the subject, you've probably found yourself sucked into a confusing hodgepodge of tax claims that contradict each other. Who's telling the truth? The first step to discovering the truth is to realize that taxes are complicated, and therefore, nobody really knows what they're talking about. The second step is to buy ...more
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.
This book is a fantastic read, and packs a lot of information into a very short book (it only took me about three hours to read it).

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.

The book is very well written in general and the last two chapters bring it to a great conclusion.

Very good read. Now to go back through and review the numbers again.
