Jorge Castro Quoted on the Status of Democrats' Tax Agenda in Politico

"Tax Hikes Still in the Mix as Dems Scramble to Save Spending Bill"


Jorge Castro, former Counselor to the IRS Commissioner during the Obama administration and former Democratic Congressional tax aide, was quoted on the status of the Democrats' tax agenda after Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) recently announced that he could not support President Biden's Build Back Better bill. "Emotions are running high right now in the Democratic caucus, but I think after the dust settles and perhaps after a little holiday cheer, cooler heads can still prevail and come to an agreement that pleases all sides," Castro said.
