Fox News Professor John Fox will discuss his new, short book
for the 2004 campaigns, 10 Tax Questions
the Candidates Don’t
Want You to Ask, at the Odyssey Bookshop Tuesday, April 13, at
7 pm. Fox’s 10 Tax Questions promises to empower ordinary
voters to think about crucial tax issues as they may never have
done before. Fox contends that one can uncover a candidate’s
basic values by asking where he or she stands on tough tax questions.
Fox’s questions—on housing, consumption, health care,
child care, retirement, higher education, single taxpayers, Social
Security, and Medicare—will create some discomfort for
most candidates, and, Fox hopes, help move them in the direction
of a fairer, more sensible tax system. More information about
the book is available at www.johnofox.com.
