Some are claiming that the budget plans adopted this week by the House and Senate Budget Committees--the full House and Senate are scheduled to consider their respective committee’s plan next week--would constitute “the largest tax increase in history.”  This claim is inaccurate, just as the same claim was inaccurate with regard to the budget resolution the Congress adopted last year.
