Finding Consensus to Improve Our Tax Code

September 23, 2014, 10:00am ET - 11:30am ET

Tax reform appears stalled for now—a victim of the same political gridlock hindering action on a wide range of issues. But, politics aside, there is actually substantial agreement among tax policymakers on how to improve the tax code. A new report from the Center for American Progress identifies common principles of good tax policy that leaders on the right and left support, as well as more than 20 specific bipartisan tax reform proposals worth more than $1 trillion over a decade. Using this report as a starting point, this event will convene tax and economic policy experts from diverse perspectives to discuss how to improve our tax code in a bipartisan manner.

The Role of Congress in the Fight Against ISIS

September 23, 2014, 1:00pm ET - 2:00pm ET

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, represents a serious threat to the United States, our allies, and our partners in the region. President Barack Obama has laid out a robust strategy to degrade and ultimately defeat ISIS, including the use of American military force, and welcomed congressional action in support of that mission. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) has been a strong advocate for Congress’ substantive and constitutional role in defining and authorizing the fight against ISIS. He has pushed his fellow members of Congress to fulfill their responsibilities and introduced legislation that would authorize the mission the president outlined and impose appropriate limits on the military campaign against ISIS.
