Tough road for Rangel on tax push
By Ian Swanson - 12/09/09 06:00 AM ET
Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) wants to push a tax reform overhaul through Congress in 2010.
The question is whether anyone will get behind the proposal offered by the embattled chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.
Democrats agenda for 2010 is already crowded with a number of priorities, and the looming election will have leaders carefully selecting what to take up. Theres also the question of the ethics investigations targeting Rangel, which have weakened the chairman of one of Congresss most powerful panels.
Rangel appears undeterred, and there are many reasons to think 2010 will be a big year for taxes. It has been more than 20 years since the last great tax reform, and the expiration of some of former President George W. Bushs individual tax cuts could give reform an impetus.
Its also a priority for the chairman of the Houses tax-writing panel. On Tuesday, Rangel said hell press Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner this week to support broad tax reform in 2010.
Rangel told executives at a PricewaterhouseCoopers symposium that he wants to persuade Geithner and members of his committee that they would serve Congress and the country better if we reform the tax system that we have.
