Making the tax code fairer and flatter will accomplish the Trump administration's goal of draining the swamp by weakening the power that corporate lobbyists have in Washington. The corporate side of the tax ledger, which has created a policy status quo in which some industries are taxed at a 35 percent rate while others pay no taxes, is a horrid mishmash of social engineering and corporate welfare. Lowering the rate and broadening the base will stop the government from picking winners and losers and fire a warning shot across the bow of the corporations whose tax rate is determined more by their lobbying teams than by smart policy.
