WASHINGTON, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus released the last in a series of tax reform discussion drafts aimed at developing proposals to help reform America's broken tax code. These drafts reflect significant progress toward the goal of comprehensive tax reform, which could help to address the country's fiscal challenges and unlock the full potential of the American economy.

"The Campaign to Fix the Debt commends Senator Baucus for his continued commitment to comprehensive tax reform," said Maya MacGuineas, head of the Campaign to Fix the Debt. "The release of these thoughtful discussion drafts is an important step forward in the tax reform process, and reflects the understanding that real reform will require making tough choices. The Campaign looks forward to working with Chairman Baucus, Chairman Camp, and other Members of Congress in the coming weeks and months to develop a simpler and fairer tax code that broadens the base, lowers rates, promotes growth and competitiveness, and reduces the deficit."
