About: [Congress] slips into a ‘predictable spiral’ - The Washington Post

Strange how groups do not (always) self organize to accomplish their goals … for example, the Congress of the United States. 

Rather the self interested political relationships of the groups members dictates what they will do. 

Seth

Place your bets:  will our dysfunctional Congress

“cut taxes” AND “run up a huge deficit”
… OR simply do nothing
… OR even, who knows, maybe even balance the equation equitably, as intended

?

Interesting book in Provenance onetime in CFR’s p.87 #315 – W.T.Cooling Public Policy 1916 – now online (**)
I would call your attention to this quote residing in the book:
   ← Pg.8 Chapter 1 ¶ 4

My summary is that when the people are smarter than the government order → disorder . According to the book the problem of forming a consensus is a primary defect.

this, if it becomes true, appears to be what i would call “not equable”
 
but i think the math needs to be redone … i am not sure how … probable fact is that the “Richest 1%” pay a higher % than the other catagories.  Seems to me that the comparison should be “per share paid”.  An interesting math problem, eh?

This really is off the topic – just more anti-Trump pile on. ELSEwhere, I have seen a flat tax would raise the taxes of the rich by double.  Me(I) just rule all “tax the rich” memes & schemes as pure jealousy at best & futile since the rich can buy a team of lawyers & accountants to outmaneuver the silly brains of the legislators proving the point of W.T.Cooling’s book.

The question can be phrased so many distorted ways.
https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/only-the-rich-pay-taxes/ 
  • of the total amount of taxes paid how much is paid by the richest 20%
  • of the total amount of tax collected who benefits the most from the taxes?
  • taxes are legal theft are they not?
  • etc ….

Seth says
well such notions brought up by representatives on the floors of Congress would almost certainly perputuate the ideologic stalemate and militate towards options 1 & 2 which i (and the op ed) presumed in the body of this thought.  to arrive at a practical improvement to the tax code, representatives  will need to talk together with a different vibration.
