Tax Article Acknowledges Discrimination Against Childless

A Fair Tax for Progressives and Conservatives
* No discrimination. Straight singles and gays complain that marriage currently brings tax benefits denied to them. Childless couples complain that tax laws favor couples with children. A Fair Tax won't end the culture war, but it'll lower the volume.
Not an extensive study on how it discriminates, but it is nice to see its existence covered in a mainstream publication. The article proposes a flat sales tax to resolve this and other inequities and problems.
