a - Are you going to broaden the base by putting more people to work?
b - Or are you going to broaden the base just through simplification and elimination of deductions?
If it's (a) then signing a law that forces every back to work probably isn't in the cars.
If it's (b) then you're talking about raising taxes, which can certainly be done via a couple of well placed signatures.
Romney has indicated that he wants to do (b) along with an across-the-board rate cut in order to facilitate (a), so a law change will be required.
