A head of government using a foreign visit for domestic political purposes? What a shocking innovation!
From The Hill newsletter www.TheHill.com
The feud between Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Thomas (R-Calif.) and House Small Business Committee Chairman Don Manzullo (R-Ill.) showed no signs of abating Thursday as both debated the corporate tax bill on the House floor. Manzullo rose to argue that the bill, sponsored by Thomas, did not include enough tax breaks for small manufacturers. When he was done, Thomas countered by claiming that Manzullo's alternative bill also did not contain those tax breaks. When Manzullo rose to defend his bill, Thomas yielded his time to the Democrats, depriving Manzullo of a chance to speak. Manzullo threw up his arms as if to say, "What gives?" Moments later, John Buckley, chief tax counsel to Ways and Means Ranking Member Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), hurried over to where Manzullo was sitting with his chief tax counsel Jim Clark. (Clark had once been a top tax aide to Thomas until a falling out several years ago, according to House aides.) Buckley indicated that the Democrats would give Manzullo time to respond, which he accepted. Thomas's bill passed handily later yesterday afternoon.
