    Tax Expert John Gaver Dissects the Rubio/Lee Tax Plan

    in Politics

    Our highly-respected guest this Wednesday, March 11, is John Gaver, author of “ The Rich Don’t Pay Tax … Or Do They?” and hundreds of well-researched and documented articles on the real effects of taxation on real Americans. In this week’s episode, John takes apart the tax reform proposition of Senators Marco Rubio and Mike Lee. At the core of the discussion is the following quote from Gaver’s blog post on the subject: “Based on its hugely preferential treatment of big businesses, over small businesses, the Rubio/Lee tax plan must have been written by lobbyists for some of the nation’s largest businesses.” Read the entire article here: http://therichdontpaytax.com/blog/, and bring your questions and comments to the show.
