Grand Bargain Unlikely

Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns dismisses President Obama’s call for a grand bargain on tax rates and federal spending. The president has suggested cutting corporate taxes, while imposing a minimum tax on foreign earnings. Any extra money generated by a tax overhaul would be spent on infrastructure. Johanns says the president is over-selling the idea. . .

Johanns doesn’t see the idea going anywhere.
