So it doesn't exist?

A:

It exists–but it’s more like a gentle slope or “fiscal obstacle course” that needs to be negotiated in
a way that shores up the incomes of working people and the poor and makes the rich and
corporations pay their fair share in taxes–after they grabbed 90% of the income generated by the
weak economic recovery.
