CNBC: Tax Fairness Reaches a Tipping Point

March 25, 2010

On CNBC’s “Kudlow Report” last night, Larry Kudlow discusses tax fairness with Robert Reich, former labor secretary, and Dick Armey, former House majority leader. Kudlow cites the Tax Foundation’s most recent report on “nonpayers,” people whose exemptions, deductions and credits wiped out any federal income tax due.

The nonpayers report also was recently highlighted by Investor’s Business Daily. More on nonpayers.
