    Which candidate was it that suggested this simple one page form during the Primaries? Was it Rand Paul or one of the others, I forget.

    I am impressed with Trump as I feel that inner libertarian express itself. As a successful businessman, it doesn't surprise me that he views taxes this way. Get heavy government, excessive requirements out of the way. Simplify the economy and let human talent and ambition rise to it's potential.

    tRump has had more failures and bankruptcies than most anyone else in America. His funding now comes from Russia as american financial institutions will not loan him money. As for his tax reform i doubt it will pass.

    Where do you put your name, address, and SS number on the card? How about the kids' names and numbers?

    No more college credits?
    No more taxes on SS income?
    No deduction of employment expenses?

    Not only won't we get a post card of a tax form, but congress has yet to ever reduce the 1040 by a single line, let alone by many lines.

    Not gonna happen...

    ... would be too disruptive to the tax preparation industry...

    ... firms like H&R Block, Jackson-Hewitt, Liberty Tax, etc.

    You can bet they have a strong lobby in Congress.
