Lobbyists and lawmakers working on tax legislation point to a relative lack of experience among officials and their staffs — particularly among House Republicans — in drafting, debating and voting on major pieces of tax legislation.

Obama budget would raise taxes by nearly $1 trillion
The Washington Post
President Barack Obama's most recent budget request would reduce borrowing by $1.1 trillion over the next decade compared with current law — almost entirely through higher taxes on the rich, large estates and smokers, congressional budget analysts said. In addition to raising nearly $1 trillion in new taxes, the president's blueprint would also cut spending modestly, according to the analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

IMF: Sequester hurting US economy, delaying recovery
The Huffington Post
As much as half of U.S. economic growth this year has been slashed due to tax increases and indiscriminate federal spending cuts known as sequestration, according to a sobering new forecast by the International Monetary Fund, which urged lawmakers to repeal the cuts. Risks to U.S. growth are "modestly tilted to the downside," the IMF said in its annual report on the nation's economy, as a reduction of $85 billion in government expenditures this year due to sequestration has dampened demand and investment, just as tax hikes have taken a big bite out of U.S. paychecks and reduced household spending.
