Barring a miracle, shortly after the turn of the century Congress will declare the federal income tax dead. Declining ethics, widening economic gaps, and decades of lawmakers who have continually rewritten the tax code have systematically undermined the once-acclaimed system that has gone from the fairest of all to widely ignored. Now, Barlett and Steele tell the truth about taxes, revealing why the system went sour, who the culprits are, and how the crisis affects all taxpayers.
