Zounds! First Gov. Huntsman gets a little praise for vetoing four absurd and unfair bills passed by the overwhelmingly Republican Legislature, then he makes a silly claim that under his regressive flat tax plan, state revenues will be more stable. As David Letterman might loudly remark: Gov. Huntsman said what!

It's not just a minor thing. Adopting a regressive flat tax for personal income isn't reform. Reform means make better or improve. Making a slightly progressive tax regressive and flat isn't an improvement.
