On the other side of the Rotunda, the Senate Finance Committee tweeted that the report showed that “momentum continues to build for comprehensive tax reform.”
JCT’s report takes a look at the tax reform proposal crafted by the Bowles-Simpson commission, the Bipartisan Policy Center and others from think tanks (the American Enterprise Institute and the Center for American Progress).
Plans from lawmakers – including one from Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) and another from Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Dan Coats (R-Ind.) – also got a look from the joint committee.
Ways and Means is scheduled to meet this week to discuss both JCT’s findings and the working groups.
