The mask is coming off on "tax reform"

It seems to me the current tax reform brouhaha plays right into the Bastiat or Rothbard analysis of the state: It’s a machine of legal plunder, and various interest groups compete to aim the mugger’s gun at their enemies to reward their friends. You can see this in how strenuously and uncharacteristically Democrats object to a tax increase when it happens to shift more of the burden onto certain wealthy constituencies they associate with.
