Re:        Baucus-Camp Statement on Call for Comprehensive Tax Reform by Job Creators Big and Small

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) today issued the following statement praising a joint call by the RATE Coalition and the Coalition for Fair Effective Tax Rates to advance and pass comprehensive tax reform that makes today's broken tax code simpler and fairer for all job creators:

“Today's call to action by these two coalitions underscores what job creators across the country have long said: our broken tax code ought to be simpler and fairer so that we will have a stronger economy where there is more investment, greater job creation and higher wages.  That is a message we’ve heard from all job creators, no matter how big or small their business.  We applaud and appreciate the efforts of these coalitions and encourage them, and those working alongside them, to keep up the fight."
