Today’s Taxpayer News!

Rep. Jo Bonner will be eligible to receive almost $65,000 per year in congressional pension benefits when he retires early next month (in addition his salary for his new position at the University of Alabama system in Tuscaloosa). As NTU’s Pete Sepp notes, “You might not be able to live like a king on the taxpayer’s dime, but you can live like a prince.”

Despite taking the tax-reform show on the road earlier this month, Senators Max Baucus (D-MT) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) are still having trouble getting their Congressional colleagues to bite on tax reform, according to The Hill.
