Tax policy | Poverty/tax study linked from Bailey’s blog overlooks facts

I must admit, I was drawn to the title of Issac Bailey’s blog post, “Study says the poor pay a higher rate of local and state taxes -- including in Phil Mickelson's California”, not because I believed the validity of the assertion, but more as a challenge to myself to find within the body of the blog the motives, false premises, half truths, omissions, and misguided analysis that buttressed the claim. In particular, I read through “Who Pays?,” a 3-year-old study that was linked in Mr. Bailey’s article.
