Boehner Was Willing to Compromise on Tax Reform, Not Tax Hikes

Lowering rates would promote growth, and scaling back deductions and exclusions would be a great reform. GE might actually have to pay taxes. And even some of the most popular deductions or exclusions--mortgage home interest and health care benefits--have distorted the health care and housing markets.
Too bad Obama put "progressivity" ahead of compromise and reform.
