Statement on President Bush's Tax Reform Panel

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) released the following statement on the recommendations of the President's tax reform panel:

"Today, the nation's complex tax code allows for people and corporations that earn the same amount of income to pay wildly different amounts in income taxes. This undermines our entire tax system," said Rep. DeGette. "We must restore fairness to our tax code. Reform, however, cannot be used to justify placing an even greater tax burden on the middle class. I am extremely concerned that President Bush will use these recommendations to further his policy of cutting taxes for the wealthy and leaving the rest of us to pay for them."
