Yet More Bad News for Romney

A new, non-partisan study of Romney's tax plan, a study that is quite generous in its expectations that Romney's plans will achieve the economic result he claims they will, nonetheless concludes that his ideas would result in the rich getting irch and the rest of us having to shoulder more of the burden of taxation. I am guessing this does not make it more likely we will be seeing those tax returns. It does make it more likely that Romney will have an even tougher time getting his polling numbers up on the question of "whether or not a candidate understands the situation of people like me."

At a time when income disparity continues to grow, the Romney plan would shift $86 billion of tax burden from those making over $200,000 to those making less than $200,000. Talk about a hard sell.
