O ye of little faith; Same.

Once again, I'm not sure how anything like this gets instituted without first repealing the Citizens United SCOTUS ruling. And now, ain't nobody got time for that because we've got wayyyyy bigger problems.

I'm wary of over-regulation, but I did like the proposed increase in IRS oversight of bank accounts designed to catch tax evaders. Beefing up the IRS to focus on tax evasion probably pays for itself.

Interestingly, the demonization of taxes is one of the longest-running coherent ideologies in the GOP. Since Reagan, right? Super patriotic. "I love this country so much that I refuse to fund its government". +anotha 1 for "The party of no internal thought".
