Schumer: Dems Will Do A Budget With Tax Reform

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Sunday that Democrats in the Senate intend to draft a budget this year that will include revenues, regardless of House Republicans use of the debt ceiling to force the Senate to come up with a  budget.

“We’re going to do a budget this year, and it’s going to have revenues in it,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”  “And our Republican colleagues better get used to that fact.”

Schumer said Democrats always intended to come up with a budget blueprint this year and that they would take advantage of the opportunity to include tax reform and bring in more revenues by closing loopholes.
