An update to yesterday's post on House-Senate conference on tax reconciliation bill. Nobody is covering this...not in the MSM or anywhere else, but it's of vital import for the economy.
Grassley told the group he is looking for middle ground with Baucus in order to get the 60 votes necessary to pass the bill. Baucus has said the bill has to include AMT relief. Taxgroup asked Baucus whether Dems could support a bill that included both an extension of the investor tax cuts and AMT relief. "It's very unclear how we are going to work this out," he said, "it's very fluid."

Oh, what a surprise.
