Day of tax deadline, hear Idaho's Labrador join other House conservatives talking 'Buffett Rule,' tax policy

First District GOP Rep. Raúl Labrador is one of three co-chairs of the new group of "free-market and liberty-minded" members of Congress holding monthly meetings with the media. The inaugural meeting last month earned coverage for GOP opposition to the GOP leadership's budget.

Tuesday's "Conversations with Conservatives" will be moderated by Rob Bluey, Director of the Center for Media and Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation. Topics will include tax reform and President Obama’s proposed “Buffett Rule" regarding tax increases for millionaires.

Citizens may submit questions via Twitter by using the hash-tag #CWC. Labrador's spokewoman, Ellen Carmichael, said Monday that the congressman wants to hear from Idahoans. "We'll be following Twitter and we'll be giving question to the moderator.'

The event begins at 11:30 a.m. MDT. In addition to Labrador, a dozen other conservative House Republicans are expected, including the other co-chairs of the group, Reps. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Jeff Landry of Louisiana.

Live video-streaming is available, including streaming for those with an smart phones.

Other participants include Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, the leading conservative group in the House and GOP Reps. Allen West and Sandy Adams of Florida, Mick Mulvaney and Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Ted Poe and Louie Gohmert of Texas, Ann Marie Buerkle of New York, Bill Johnson of Ohio and David Schweikert of Arizona.

Add the Buffet Box to Form

Add the Buffet Box to Form 1040. Any millionaire or billionaire who wishes to pay higher taxes can simply check this box and send a check with the additional amount of tax to the IRS. They can set their own higher rate - 50%, 70%, 90% - whatever they feel is fair in their situation as long as it is a higher rate than what is currently required under the tax code.

Or maybe there should be a Millionaire EZ Form which eliminates the necessity of itemizing deductions. Keep it simple!

Yeah, cause voluntary tax collections is great public policy.

You are trending far*ther and far*ther towards the anti-intellectaul abyss that most conservatives seem to be embracing these days.

Yup, you're right: Tuesday is the deadline

Thanks, Pimp2. I accounted for the 15th falling on Sunday, but I forgot about DC's Emancipation Day, which is today, April 16, and is treated as a federal holiday for tax purposes.
