September 27, 2017
by Dean Zerbe, former Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee and alliantgroup National Managing Director

The Trump administration and the tax-writing committees released today their “Unified Framework For Fixing Our Broken Tax Code,” seeking to put more meat on the bone of tax reform. The framework is particularly important to give comfort to Republican policymakers as the Congress begins the first step of the two step process – first step: budget resolutions with reconciliation instructions; that leads to the second step: tax bill under reconciliation (only needs 50 votes in the Senate to pass – VP tiebreaker). Probably the biggest indicator that makes me think a tax bill is possible is recent rumblings that the Senate Republicans have reached an agreement on a number for tax […]
