Tough Road on Tax Reform

“When Max Baucus announced last week that he wasn’t running for reelection, he said he would instead devote his efforts to passing tax reform. But is the Senate Finance Committee chairman’s retirement announcement a game-changer for tax reform?  … Optimists see Baucus’s desire for a lasting legislative legacy as a key to success. Pessimists, or more accurately status quo-ers, don’t believe the Baucus news shifts the political dynamics enough to make a difference. So the two forces cancel each other out and the odds remain long of getting comprehensive tax reform done before 2015.” (Chris Frates, National Journal)
