AAP Fact-checked House Ways and Means "Communication Document" for May 23rd Hearing

The Americans for Affordable Products coalition did some homework to prepare the Ways and Means Committee for tomorrow's hearing.  See their memo below and definitely check out the linked document:


To: House Ways and Means Committee

From: Americans for Affordable Products

Date: May 22, 2017

Re: Fact Checking “Communications Document for May 23 Tax Hearing”

Last week, the House Ways and Means Committee released a document to its members providing guidance for their May 23, 2017 hearing on the Border Adjustment Tax (BAT) called “Increasing U.S. Competitiveness and Preventing American Jobs from Moving Overseas: Communication’s Document for May 23 Tax Hearing.”

Unfortunately, the Committee got it wrong by misrepresenting the truth about the BAT and taking out context statements made by companies who oppose it.

A corrected version can be found here: “Increasing the Tax Burden on Working Families So Some Profitable, Multi-National Companies Operate Tax Free: Communications Document for the May 23 Tax Hearing.”

Please consider using the content in this document as you prepare for tomorrow’s hearing.
