But at other times, the businessman seems to set his course against the prevailing winds of conservative opinion.

Jeb Bush’s plan merely reshuffles the deck of who gets the favors, rather than fundamentally reforming the tax code. And that begs the question: Why should the government pick economic winners and losers through the tax code?
