A Broken System?

Prof. H. David Rosenbloom, also of NYU Law School, said the fundamental question is what people are talking about when they talk about tax reform.

"I don't think anything about the individual tax system is broken," he said. "I understand that it is complex, but that affects a relatively small number of people."

The bigger question, he said, is whether so much attention should go to revamping the corporate tax system when other issues are perhaps more critical.

" ‘Broken' is language that is too extreme," he said. "There are a lot of things in life that don't work perfectly and this is one of them."
