A view that runs contrary to some here who have argued for tax reform. Of course, the tax breaks, credits, and loopholes play the simple role of providing opportunities for corruption.

A clear majority of Americans have an unfavorable view of the federal income tax system, according to new Washington Post-ABC News polling. But, in a somewhat remarkable finding, a majority of Democrats view the tax system in a positive light while Republicans and Independents carry the exact opposite view.

Fifty-three percent of self-identified Democrats in the Post-ABC survey view the income tax system favorably while 43 percent see it unfavorably. That’s a stark contrast to the 66 percent of Republicans and 62 percent of independents who have an unfavorable opinion of the tax system. [...]

Reforming the tax code has long been a priority for Republicans who insist it could reduce the deficit while averting a tax rate increase. But, at least according to these Post-ABC numbers, Democrats don’t see the tax system as broken and may well put up a fight if and when their GOP rivals push tax reform over tax increases as a solution to the country’s fiscal problems.
