Camp Still Leading GOP Tax Fight

July 30, 2012
Rep. David Camp will still be leading this week's Republican floor fight on tax cuts, despite announcing Saturday that he will begin treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Camp, chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, will undergo treatment, including chemotherapy, every three weeks for several months.

My colleague Kelsey Snell reports Camp will remain in Washington this week as the tax debate moves over to the House. The Senate already shot down the Republican plan to extend all Bush-era tax cuts and instead approved last week the Democratic plan to extend those tax cuts for couples making under $250,000 a year or individuals earning $200,000.

The rhetoric around the tax debate hasn't been pretty, and Snell reports that "it is Camp who will be in the middle of that debate. It is uncertain to what extent the announcement about his health might soften what had previously been anticipated to be some sharp partisan rhetoric on the House floor."
