In discussions of GOP tax reform, you might hear Speaker Paul Ryan throw around terms like "repatriation" and "inversion" or compare a worldwide tax system to a territorial tax system. Here's what all these tax terms mean.
I was very pleased to read Linda Cades’ analysis of the shortsighted and downright foolish GOP tax plan currently making its way through Congress (“GOP tax bill is a loser,” Nov. 20). As Ms. Cades suggests, Maryland Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen will certainly oppose it — which is, indeed, something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
I also hope the much-caricatured political discussions around the Thanksgiving table will motivate more Americans to reach out to their representatives in Congress to express their discontent with any tax plan that leaves our poorest behind to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations.
