Foundation

The Taxpayer's Tab is the weekly newsletter for up-to-the-minute research from the National Taxpayers Union Foundation's BillTally Project.  Each week, NTUF will bring you updates on the week's most and least expensive bills, the ones with the most cosponsors ("the most friended"), and a few bills we've termed Wildcards -- bills that we think you might find interesting.
