If public employees were "real taxpayers" their income would actually increase.

I am going to go with C. C can be inferred from only both the statements. E can be inferred from just the last statement.

The premise doesn't say that taxpayes are the ONLY group that would have increased disposable income.

There could be other groups whose disposable income would also increase when taxes are abolished. So B is not NECESSARILY true.

PS: vivek, TeHCM, subbu, HIMALAYA...others.. I am learning the concepts of SC. Please feel to correct my "crappy grammar"

I go with C...although E looks quite logical but would be too much to infer.

I'll go with C.

E seems wrong because it doesn't address the issue of taxpayers income increasing because of tax abolishment.
