B is my choice.

Stem:
According to some analysts, whatever its merits, the proposal to tax away all capital gains on short-term investments would, if enacted, have a disastrous effect on Wall Street trading and employment.

Note :Whatever is not to be underlined.

Reason:
may be and if enacted are both future tense, parallel construction.

its modifies proposal
