I saw T-Paw on a television show the other day, and he had this proposal: make members of congress do their own taxes. Furthermore, the law would forbid them from using a lawyer or accountant for help - they have to do it themselves! This would give members of congress a taste of the awful tax code that they expect the rest of us to grapple with. Maybe then they'd have more incentive to simplify it.
If it was up to me, I would contract out google to redesign the tax code and develop a system for collecting taxes and distributing returns.
