Got to wondering.... How many Senators and Representatives do you suppose do their own tax returns? How much do you think the tax code would change if they started doing their own tax returns?

Dreaming. I would not insist they do their own income taxes, because they would find a way to not do it. I would settle for their being forced to actually read the entire internal revenue code that they pass every time it is changed, and pass a test on it.

My hope is they get the entire internal revenue code down from 24 megabytes to 24 pages.
