No Love Between Tax Policy Center and Rick Perry

October 31, 2011
The center-left Tax Policy Center offered a harsh review of GOP Texas Gov. Rick Perry's optional tax plan on its Oct. 26 TaxVox blog last week calling it "a policy disaster" that would do nothing to simplify the tax code and would mainly benefit the richest among us.

"Whatever you think of the rest of Perry's plan, giving taxpayers a choice about how much tax to pay is just plain dumb," wrote Howard Gleckman.

It looks like the Perry campaign may have read the post, because when the Tax Policy Center released its formal analysis of the tax plan on Monday, this footnote caught our eye:

"TPC has made several attempts--beginning Tuesday, October 25--to contact the campaign to clarify key details and confirm the assumptions underlying this analysis. As of Monday, October 31, we have not received any response."
