The controversy over Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups:
BAUCUS: "There does need to be significant restructuring in the IRS.... Clearly, within the agency itself there has got to be some major accountability changes....
CAMP: "Clearly the management was either intentionally not looking or I would say so out of touch almost rising to the level of wrongdoing."
Their joint push for broad tax reform:
CAMP: "We have had a lot of years where the economy hasn't come back as strongly as it should. And so I don't think we have a lot of time to wait."
BAUCUS: "If we don't reform the code in this Congress ... beyond that it will be '17, '18, because if we don't in this Congress, then we are over in a presidential election season, and ... it is going to be very difficult to pass tax reform in that context."
Whether a tax on the carbon content of fuels will be part of tax reform:
BAUCUS: "There are more members of the Senate now who openly talk about that.... It is creeping up a little bit...."
CAMP: "I try not to make many declarative statements about tax reform ... but I don't support a carbon tax."
