Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery published an op-ed on President Donald Trump's tax plan, which is based on economic growth paying for large proposed tax cuts. According to McCaffery, instead of providing tax breaks for the richest Americans, Trump has the opportunity to ask them to share tax costs with all income brackets. "Unfortunately, it is exactly such a sensible reaction to rising economic inequality and mounting associated political concerns that sounds like voodoo these days," he wrote.
