American Tax Resisters
Hardcover ISBN: 0674281373
"The American taxpayer"--angered by government waste and satisfied only with spending cuts--has preoccupied elected officials and political commentators since the Reagan Revolution. But resistance to progressive taxation has older, deeper roots. American Tax Resisters presents the full history of the American anti-tax movement that has defended the pursuit of limited taxes on wealth and battled efforts to secure social justice through income redistribution for the past 150 years. From the Tea Party to the Koch brothers, the major players in today's anti-tax crusade emerge in Romain Huret's account as the heirs of a formidable--and far from ephemeral--political movement. Diverse coalitions of Americans have rallied around the flag of tax opposition since the Civil War, their grievances fueled by a determination to defend private life against government intrusion and a steadfast belief in the economic benefits and just rewards of untaxed income. Local tax resisters were actively mobilized by business and corporate interests throughout the early twentieth century, undeterred by such setbacks as the Sixteenth Amendment establishing a federal income tax. Zealously petitioning Congress and chipping at the edges of progressive tax policies, they bequeathed hard-won experience to younger generations of conservatives in their pursuit of laissez-faire capitalism. Capturing the decisive moments in U.S. history when tax resisters convinced a majority of Americans to join their crusade, Romain Huretexplains how a once marginal ideology became mainstream, elevating economic success and individual entrepreneurialism over social sacrifice and solidarity.

The Benefit and the Burden
Tax Reform--Why We Need It and What It Will Take
Hardcover ISBN: 1451646194
A spirited and insightful examination of the need for American tax reform—arguably the most overdue political debate facing the nation—from one of the most legendary political thinkers, advisers, and writers of our time.The U.S. Tax Code has not been fully reformed since 1986. It is an overgrown mess. Today, there is a serious divergence, on both the right and the left, between the size of the government we want, and what we are willing to pay for. Adding to the confusion, people have little sense of who pays what, how much, and when. Tax reform will be a major issue in the 2012 presidential campaign. Voters will expect major party candidates to lay out plans that confront budget deficits and account for the expiration of various tax cuts. But practical and reasonable assessments of how we might better match our fiscal realities to our ideal future are rarely forthcoming. The Benefit and the Burden frames the tax reform debate and explores the advantages and costs of the various proposals and ideas that will come to dominate America’s political conversation in the years ahead. It is essential reading for every voting American.
