It seems to me that if you want to debate the merits of two systems...you have to have the same revenue from both systems for the sake of discussion. Otherwise you're mixing spending policy with taxing policy.

The two are inextricably intertwined; it's entirely appropriate to discuss both together. Necessary, even, if we're to arrive at coherence in both.
