Mexico president gambles with left-leaning reform

Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto speaks at Los Pinos presidential residence in Mexico City, Sunday Sept. 8, 2013. Pena Nieto is proposing a plan to implement the country's first nationwide pensions, unemployment insurance and capital-gains taxes. The plan was originally billed as a reform of the tax system to close industry-specific loopholes, but Pena Nieto also proposed a carbon tax, and a levy on soft drinks.(AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)
