Is Washington’s tax system deeply flawed and skewed against the poor? That’s the conclusion of a commission led by Bill Gates Senior. But few believe that tax reform will be seriously considered in the near future.

How does Washington’s tax system work? How could it be improved? Why have efforts to change the tax system going back decades always failed?
