A Generational Perspective on Taming The Tax Code

What Yesterday’s Reformers Can Teach Today’s Reformers

The stars may be aligned for a once-in-a-generation opportunity to overhaul the tax code. But what can the last generation teach us about their experiences in trying to tame the tax code?

What conditions made bipartisan tax reform possible? How important is presidential leadership? How do you balance simplicity, growth, and revenue neutrality? How do you balance tax cuts for individuals with tax reform for businesses? How can we make reform last for the long-term?

In order to answer some of these questions, in collaboration with The Archer Center and the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management, we will host a panel featuring current and former members of the House Ways & Means Committee. Join us on March 20, 2017 for a special conversation with:

  • Bill Archer (R-TX), Former Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee
  • Charles Rangel (D-NY), Former Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee
  • Kevin Brady (R-TX), Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee
  • Richard Neal (D-MA), Ranking Member of the House Ways & Means Committee

The discussion will be moderated by Richard E. Cohen, chief author of The Almanac of American Politics.
