    No, but there are plenty of lawyers!

    They’re asking for an accountant just for public consumption to make it look like they value the input of someone who knows bookkeeping. If history is any indicator, they will ignore his recommendations and continue with their bipartisan stupidity. Although, Reps and Dems were talking to each other as of this morning.

    Fealty to Jesus Norquist and the religion of low taxation has nothing to do with accounting sense. It’s about manipulating people like Ima to ensure that the wealthiest of the wealthy continue to accumulate wealth by taxation policy rather than merit.

    Yes, when the two parties talk and agree on something they are at their stupidest.

    I hear Al Capone had a real good one. Maybe they could dig him up and get a referral.

    Republicans are experts on nothing. Marco Rubio doesn’t know how old the earth is because he’s, “not a scientist, man.” Republicans just use ALEC provided boilerplate. They even forget to take the ALEC mission statement out of the bill.

    The committee just wants to know what the accountant recommends so they can enact laws that bypass all those recommendations!

    Well, do you go for thousands or billions? Or is that too hard a choice for you?

    Agree with Ima on this. Too much time sucking up to corporate/union/lobbyist interests to really do the right thing by their oath to the country (with some exceptions). In regards to the Rubio comment, that it was a debate among “theologians”, we have a Congressional representative, on the SCIENCE committee, saying that evolution, etc. were “lies from the gates of hell!” Any guess as to which party?

    “Reps and Dems were talking to each other as of this morning”

    Yes, they’re talking . . . but what is really really needed is a simplification of the tax code.

    The politicians in both parties use promises of new deductions, and threaten to eliminate existing subsidies, to wring more and more campaign contributions from donors.

    Not only is it corrosively corrupting, but it is, as the Simpson-Boles commission on debt reduction called it “backdoor spending hidden in the tax code”.

    @corzak

    But if you simplify then normal people would understand it. That would throw thousands of lawyers and accountant out of work. Not to mention IRS auditors.

    your statement is still correct and still silly.
