Saturday Morning Paper

This is outrageous:

How low can taxes go?

A sober, clear-eyed discussion of American tax policy. In an Australian paper.

Can anybody point me to an equally cogent and frank article in an American paper?

I didn't think so.

Triple bonus points if you can find a discussion of Australian tax policy in an American paper. Or how about a discussion about the successful, cost-effective nationalized Australian health care system. In all the sturm and drang about Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare, you'd think somebody, somewhere would say, "Gee, how does an English-speaking democracy isolated on its own continent manage?"
