Rephrasing an earlier thread that didn't get much airtime.
Why aren't we discussing a more fundamental question of eliminating the government's ability to influence behavior through the tax code? In the marriage debate everyone seems to be assuming that it is just for the government to dole out ...

Why are we even accepting the premise that the government should have the right to influence behavior via the tax code?
