The week of June 14th the House is considering H.R.4520, a modified version of H.R. 2896, Ways & Means Chairman Thomas’ bill to replace the FSC/ETI tax regime. GOP inaction on this matter prompted trade-related sanctions imposed by the European Union on a wide variety of US products (mainly agricultural, metals, machinery, and electrical equipment) that began March 1, 2004 and could eventually amount to $4 billion.  Thomas has ignored substantial bipartisan agreement in the House and Senate over how best to address this problem.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer released the following statement today strongly criticizing the restrictive process in which the House Republican leadership is permitting floor debate on the FSC/ETI corporate sales tax bill:

“Once again today, we see that the Republicans’ high-minded talk about fairness and openness on this house floor was only so much hot air.  Lest anyone be mistaken, the so-called “Republican Revolution” is long dead and long gone.
