“At Monday’s markup, Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-Wash.) quizzed a tax expert on this corporate exceptionalism:

“‘Will a teacher in my district who buys pens, pencils and paper for his students be able to deduct these costs from his tax returns under this plan?’ He will not.

“‘Will a corporation that buys pens, pencils and papers for its workers be able to deduct those costs from its tax returns?’ It will.

“‘Will a firefighter in my district be able to deduct the state and local sales taxes that she pays from her tax return?’ She will not.

“‘Will a corporation be able to deduct sales taxes on business purchases?’ It will.”

And so it goes according to this opinion column in The Washington Post: “Welcome to the new gilded age”
