Paul Ryan has come out with yet another empty talking point - simply the tax system so that the new tax forms would be the size of a postcard (although that's a pretty damn big postcard he's holding in the video).

In fact, sources tell us that Ryan's simplified forms will have only three lines:

1) Did you make less than $1 million last year? If yes, send us all your money.

2) Did you make more than $1 million last year? If yes, we'll send you your government check as soon as the chumps from Question 1 pay up.

NOTE: Campaign donors will have higher priority on tax refunds.

See how easy that is?

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
