"crazy tax code" is really just republican politician talk for "we dont wanna pay taxes"

its meant to confuse and is structured that way so the more you have, the more you can hide.
I know "Free Market" sounds nice, but it's a really old, really tired Libertarian line of nonsense that doesn't jibe with reality.
It would fully hand the reins of power to the Koch's, the Walton's, and Sackler families of the world to pollute the air we breath on the way to our local WalMart where we'll buy over the counter oxycontin.
Convincing their voters that government is a boogeyman is one of the GOPs most successful psy-ops.
