It would be the ultimate fiscal cliff. A group of House Republicans wants to put an expiration date on the 75,000-page U.S. tax code. The Tax Code Termination Act would require the repeal of the entire code in 2017 - except for the bits dealing with Social Security and Medicare - with a new system ready to go for the following year.

|March 22, 2005||Hill Attacks Alan.
"...When the talk turned to the promising surplus forecasts that Greenspan relied on to support President Bush's 2001 tax cuts, the former First Lady pounced. 'It turns out that we were all wrong,' Greenspan admitted. But Hillary quickly snapped: 'Just for the record, we were not all wrong, but many people were wrong.' Hillary had joined with most of her Democrat colleagues to vote against the 2001 tax cuts, and one of their stated reasons was that the federal deficits would explode. Of course, this was before the 9/11 attacks and the global War on Terror, which helped to both slow economic growth and vastly increase federal spending."
