Ben Cardin (D-MD) Confirms Max Baucus Offering 50-Year "Shield" For Tax Reform Recommendations
On the road, but just heard the following on C-Span's "Washington Journal" with Peter Slen (host) and Senator Ben Cardin (MD), Finance Committee:
Finance Committee Chairperson Max Baucus is going to grant a 50-year "cover" or shield regarding all recommendations made to overhaul the Tax Code.
This confirms that the Dems are getting ready to lead the charge to "give a haircut" to the American People (on taxes, in exchange for beginning to dismantle the Social Safety Net).
[Will try to "clip" this portion of the program when we arrive destination. This is even worse than I've been suspecting. PLEASE call your Senators and Reps and protest the "Grand Bargain"--trading tax revenue for cuts to Social Security and Medicare!!!}
Hope someone can follow up. (Not much I can do on this for a couple of days, at least.)
This is unreal--and unacceptable!
