GOP Woos Its Own on K Street

“But on a policy basis, they said, we’re opposed to paying for temporary tax cuts with permanent tax increases,” said this lobbyist. “Grassley said that from a policy perspective that doesn’t make sense. ... They do not believe there should be pay-fors for these tax extenders.”

This lobbyist added that he came out of the meeting feeling that it was “very clear that there was no doubt the Republican Senators want to move and put the tax extenders into law as soon as possible. But they aren’t going to do it by sacrificing their policy principles.”

Jay Heflin of CongressNow contributed to this report.
