Good Signs from the Deficit Commission

Early reports suggest the Bipartisan Deficit Commission is considering some good ideas: a higher retirement age, lower tax rates coupled with broader tax bases, eliminating tax expenditures such as the mortgage interest deduction, and a higher gasoline tax.

My regular readers will know that these are ideas I have long embraced.  I look forward to seeing more details.

Update: Some details are here.
