Tax Breaks for the Rich

The CBO recently released a large report on tax expenditures, deductions, credits, and exclusions that go to individuals. As I said, its a large report, so fortunately Dylan Matthews at Wonkblog has already broken it down to six charts, of which I will repost the first one.

Take a look at his full post for the rest of the charts.

It seems to me that there is plenty of room to, say cut some deductions, exclusions, etc on the highest percentiles so we can afford to pay for food stamps.
