Charles Schumer Throws Cold Water on ‘Gang of Six’ Tax Plan

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call

Senate Finance ranking member Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) quickly responded to Schumer’s speech, saying, “The default position of [the] president’s party is our economy, debt and entitlement programs are just fine, and the only solution is to raise taxes on one of the most productive segments of our economy. Glad they’ve made their opposition to reform clear to the American people. Fixing Washington — from our broken tax code to our unsustainable entitlement programs — is essential to getting America back on track; it’s unfortunate that so many on the other side of the aisle fail to understand that.”
