    I would be curious to know how close your 20% figure would come to generating the same amount of tax revenue.
I would too, but I'll be damned if I have the time to find out. I assure you, it's not laziness. .....(walks away to take a nap).

The analysis seems to be messy depending on the assumptions made about how the change would affect peoples' behavior and how much tax evasion would occur, but the estimates are in the 22% to 28% range, with a few higher.
