Tax Breaks for the Rich/Cuts for the Poor « Larry Miller’s Blog.

Most Americans would be surprised to learn that tax breaks are not on the table during any budget negotiations. In fact, Congress has the Congressional Budget Office prepare an official spending estimate for the cost of all programs or their expansions. Meanwhile, Congress enacts and continues tax breaks without any requirement that the cost of tax breaks be calculated and shared with members before a vote.

well, duh.. you don’t bite the hand that feeds you!
