Tax Reform Rattles Washington Establishment

Washington – Today, the House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI) will unveil draft legislation to reform the nation’s broken tax code.  Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“This tax reform proposal is an important step in launching a debate on how to revive the American economy after years of mismanagement. Chairman Camp framed the fight perfectly in his memo to the Committee: ‘Many in Washington are scared by the prospects of tax reform; they don’t want to look special interests in the eye and say the game is up… Well, it is. We simply cannot afford the business-as-usual mentality that keeps Washington comfortable, but complacent.’ While not perfect, there is much to applaud in the Chairman’s work, and we look forward to working with the House to improve this legislation and provide the American people with the economic opportunities they deserve.”
