Please join us for an event focused on the urgent need for comprehensive reform of the U.S. tax code. Guest speakers include Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Dave Cote, Chairman and CEO of Honeywell International.

The event will also feature a panel on comprehensive tax reform, which will discuss the Fiscal Commission’s "Zero Plan" which dramatically lowers rates, broadens the tax base, and reduces the deficit. A second panel will discuss possible fail-safes and triggers designed to cut tax expenditures across the board in order to force action on reform. The event will also mark the release of a new PPI report by Paul Weinstein and Marc Goldwein entitled “Less is More: The Modified Zero Plan for Tax Reform.” This paper offers an in depth analysis of the Fiscal Commission’s “Zero” and “Modified Zero” tax reform plans.

This event is cosponsored by The Progressive Policy Institute and The Moment of Truth project, and is being hosted by the Center for Advance Governmental Studies at The Johns Hopkins University.
