NRO Defends Lee Tax Plan

National Review’s Patrick Brennan responds to leftist criticism of Sen. Mike Lee’s push to create a more generous child tax credit.

Writes Brennan:

Matt Bruenig, a writer for Salon, thinks that Senator Mike Lee’s tax plan, which is given prominent billing in Robert Stein’s tax chapter of the YG Network’s new policy book, Room to Grow, is a “horror show” because it’s just another giveaway to the rich. I don’t doubt that he would find a way to call it a horror show whatever the facts of the plan are, but he either misunderstands the way its proposals for the expansion of tax benefits for parents work or he simply doesn’t care and wants to mislead his audience about them. His characterization of a key aspect of the plan is just wrong.
