Mike's Blog Round Up
April 15, 2017

Montana Cowgirl Blog: Sorry, voucher fans; yet more research shows public schools outperform private ones.

Intelligent Discontent: Sorry, Montanans, but Donald Jr. is coming to campaign in your state.

Rewire: Sorry, Tennessee Republicans, but the Supreme Court said you can’t do that.

VoxEU: Sorry, supply siders, but new research suggests less progressivity in the tax code only increases income inequality, not economic growth.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Taxes were less progressive in 2006 than in 1996, and consequently, tax policy also contributed to the increase in income inequality between 1996 and 2006." (Congressional Research Service, December 2011.)

Guest blogging Mike's Blog Round Up this week is Jon Perr from Perrspectives. Send your tips, recommendations, comments and angst to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.
