Senate Tax Reform Bill

May 18, 1986

Under either the Senate or the House versions, married couples with decent incomes and no children will be taxed more heavily than they have been in the past.

Childless couples have always been taxed more heavily than couples with children. Why? The world is presently facing an overwhelming population crisis. Most demographers agree there are too many people in the world. It is, therefore, not sound social policy to tax childless couples more heavily than similarly situated couples with children are taxed.
