Mrs. Pelosi has a plan Charlies Rangel is working on the lergest tax incresae in history, Alison Fitzgerald, Bloomberg :
Rangel yesterday offered a sweeping tax overhaul, which he dubbed “the mother of all reforms.” The proposal would raise taxes on higher-income families and some businesses, while cutting bills for the working poor and lowering the corporate rate. Republicans accused Rangel and his party of trying to raise taxes by more than $1 trillion.
Elsewhere on the Hil the ‘rats on planning on taking more vacation time for themselves. David M Hersxenhorn, New York Times ;
10 months into the session, with their legislative agenda often in gridlock with the Bush administration and a big election year looming, the Democrats are now planning a lighter schedule when the 110th Congress begins its second year in mid-January
House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer:
“I do intend to have more time for members to work in their districts and to be close to their families.”
That is Mrs. Pelosi’s plan, more taxes on hard working Ameicans but more vacations for oongresscritters.
