Special-Interest Politics: Real-Estate Lobby Edition

Richard Rubin of the Wall Street Journal tweeted this quote from Doug Holtz-Eakin this week.

There is so much more out there on the issue. While I have my issues with the doubling of the standard deduction (mostly I don’t like that it kicks more people off the tax rolls), I recognize that it will bring very needed simplification to the tax code. The furor of the real-estate lobby is evidence of that. Their criticism should be ignored for the benefit of all.
