45 out of 48 Senate Democrats signed a letter to President Trump, Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) today, urging Republicans to work with them on tax reform. The olive branch, of course, came with terms:
- No increase in the tax burden on the middle class
- No tax cuts for the top 1%
- Tax Reform is accomplished through regular order, not the budget reconciliation process
- Tax Reform is deficit neutral
The full letter is available here. Aside from the request to pursue tax reform through regular order, the Democrat’s terms look remarkably similar to positions publicly supported by the Big 6 (check out our infographic).
