Daschle: Senate GOP Plan For IRS Reform Too Expensive

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, March 26) -- Even before a key Republican unveils his plan to reform the Internal Revenue Service, Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) says it is too expensive.

Daschle told reporters the Senate should consider the already passed House reform plan and send it to the President before tax day, April 15.

Daschle says the plan by Sen. William Roth (R-Del .), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, will just slow the process down.

"In essence what the Republican leadership is telling the American people is wait. Hold on. Just forget about any IRS reform for the foreseeable future," Daschle said.

Roth will release his plan later Thursday. A press release from the Senate Finance Committee says the plan would give the IRS commissioner more authority in restructuring the agency and make IRS employees more accountable for their actions.
