Committee sources expect a draft to be ready sometime in the fall. It’s not too late to get your two cents in…If you are interested in contacting the tax committees with a plan for tax overhaul, please do not hesitate to call us. We will help ensure your idea is vetted. House Republicans are quite steadfast that this will be a comprehensive redraft, not a piecemeal approach.

Hill staffers are abuzz and upset. One of the requirements of Obamacare is for staff to get health insurance through exchanges. However, it is not clear that the government is required to pay for the premiums. Congress and the White House are working on a fix to avoid a massive exodus from the Hill.

As the national list of political scoundrels grows, so does their determination to campaign on.  Truly amazing! Wouldn’t it be nice if the better qualified candidates would win elections rather than the ones with the best media presence?

Enjoy August.
