Former Treasury Official Discusses Need for Bipartisanship in Tax Reform
February 28, 2007
Yesterday we posted a Tax Policy Podcast interview with Mark Weinberger, who is the Americas Vice Chairman for Tax Services at Ernst & Young and a former Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy at the U.S. Treasury.
Weinberger discusses with Tax Foundation President Scott Hodge some of the more pressing tax policy problems our country faces today, as well as the necessity for cooperation–both between the parties and between Congress and the Administration–in addressing these tax problems. Topics covered include the alternative minimum tax (AMT), Social Security reform, and the complexity of the tax code.
