Steve Forbes is a one issue candidate. His primary concern is to push a flat tax through Congress. Unfortunately, the fact that a flat tax would be a fiscal catastrophe doesn't appear to be a concern of Forbes. However, I doubt Forbes' zeal for the flat tax has nothing to do with the estimated $1 billion USD he'd save in income taxes alone if a flat tax were passed.
