Tipton: Tax bill loaded with lard

The measure to extend the existing federal tax scheme has been “Christmas-treed up” with unnecessary ornaments, U.S. Rep.-elect Scott Tipton, R-Colorado, said Tuesday.

A measure aimed at extending for two years what have become known as the Bush tax cuts now includes an extension of unemployment benefits, an ethanol subsidy and other items intended to benefit one constituency or another, Tipton said.

“It’s another example of what has a lot of us frustrated” with the process in Washington, D.C., Tipton said.

Congress should simply extend the tax rates and go home, Tipton said.

Tipton will take office in January as Republicans take over control of the House.
