A Brookings-UI Tax Policy Center study drives what should be a stake through the heart of the Romney campaign:
[A]ny revenue-neutral individual income tax change that incorporates the features Governor Romney has proposed would provide large tax cuts to high-income households, and increase the tax burdens on middle- and/or lower-income taxpayers.
Total burden shifted from over-$200k households to under $200k households: $86 billion a year. No wonder the plutocrats are spending money to elect Romney.
And yes, Obama is all over it. And no, Romney doesn’t actually have any response, other than trying to change the subject.
Update Zach Hensel adds it all up.
