"Overall, this brief but painstakingly researched proposal deserves to be part of the national conversation on tax reform. ...A thoughtful, rigorous plan to make the tax code more morally and rationally defensible.” -Kirkus Review

Dr. Paul Cummins

"Bravo, Mark Fishman! What could be more important than an intelligent, relatively simple and equitable roadmap to tax reform? Fishman’s Framework could lead to securing the funds needed to improve our failing schools, to radically overhaul our national infrastructure, and to give hope to millions of middle and lower class citizens who believe they are carrying the burden for wealthy tax evading and dodging individuals and corporations. Fishman applies a radical solution - fairness. Thus, Fishman's framework cries out for serious consideration."

Mr. Fishman has achieved what our politicians have been unable to accomplish: a simple, fair, and effective tax system. The fact that he has lowered taxes yet provided universal healthcare and free college should appeal to all Americans. Moreover, he has singly handedly abolished the alternative minimum tax.

Lawrence Thompson Bowles, MD., PhD.

Mark Fishman's plan to revise the tax system in the United States makes great good sense. It will produce more revenues and is far more equitable than today's complex and unfair system. His plan would help us save Social Security and pay for Universal Health Care.

Had this plan been in effect in 2012:

3.714

Revenues (TRILLION!)

179

Budget Surplus (Billion)

100

Percent of Loopholes Eliminated
