    "These tax breaks cost the Treasury $1.3 trillion last year, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center."

    This statement reflects the progressive belief that everything you earn belongs to the government, and out of the goodness of their hearts they allow you to keep some of it.

    The article calle Tax Policy Center nonpartisan but it is a joint by the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution. Both are very liberal/progressive think tanks. The Tax Policy Center may be nonpartisan in the sense it is not affiliated with either political party, but certainly has a progressive view of the world.
