Netroots Nation Day #1

By  Nick Kasprak  on June 07, 2012 3:00 PM

The first day of exhibiting at Netroots Nation is going well - we're pushing our work on film tax credits and sales tax holidays, and the progressives here are receptive. I've been framing things as a transparency argument - using the tax code for social policy is bad because it hides the true cost of what you're doing, and to the extent the government is trying to enact social policy it should be on the spending side, not the tax side.

Also, our offical Tax Foundation keychains/tape measurers/levels are inexplicably incredibly popular.
