Paul Okay With Wealthy Paying More—If Tax Code Simplified

Appearing on CNN Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., supported the idea of wealthier Americans paying higher taxes if the code is simplified and all loopholes are closed.

From Mediate:

Since taking office, Paul has pushed  for entitlement reform to include raising the retirement age and means-testing for Medicare to prevent the affluent from receiving benefits. Though the Senator's position is a bit more nuanced, many observers take his position as a potential compromise between lawmakers on the long-term solvency of entitlement programs.
