Mark Trahant: Payroll tax not fair to all Americans

"Every election season is a good time to talk about tax reform because any thinking politician is quick to promise lower taxes, simpler taxes or fairer taxes.

It's ridiculous to even imagine the flip side, a campaign that says, "The tax code is great. I like the complexity of IRS rules. I like the time I spend looking back on my year, sorting through receipts and marveling on what it means to be a U.S. citizen."

But in our political debates, we tend to talk only about certain taxes."
