Tax Reform

Dave Barry’s tax reform proposal would result in a much thinner Congress, I think.

Here’s my proposal, which is based on the TV show Survivor: We put the entire Congress on an island. All the food on this island is locked inside a vault, which can be opened only by an ordinary American taxpayer named Bob. Every day, the congresspersons are given a section of the Tax Code, which they must rewrite so that Bob can understand it. If he can, he lets them eat that day; if he can’t, he doesn’t.

Or, he can give them food either way. It doesn’t matter. The main thing is, we never let them off the island.

Now that’s a reality show worth watching!
