Things have officially gotten ugly on the campaign trail.
By now, you've heard the back and forth claims from the Romney and Obama camps.
What's easy to forget is that all of this incendiary rhetoric came out of the usually-boring world of tax policy. The claim from the Obama camp is that Mitt Romney's tax plan would help rich people and businesses, while shifting more of a burden on low- and middle-income taxpayers.
As I've written before, the claim has some merit. But it is far from the end of the story.
Turns out, there is a conservative tax plan that would lower the burden on businesses and low-income families at the same time. It's just not getting any attention right now.
