Tax the poor, feed the rich

And speaking of regressive, counter-productive tax policies, check out this new report released this morning [1], which shows that recent proposals from Republican leaders in the U.S. House and Senate would extend lucrative tax breaks for 140 multi-million-dollar estates in North Carolina while letting tax improvements expire for 522,645 moderate-income North Carolina working families with 1.1 million children.

Sounds like pretty standard right-wing trickledown/flood-up economics.
