Guy Saperstein, a former civil rights attorney and member of the Patriot Millionaires, said the most “substantive and revealing” meeting took place with supercommittee member Sen. John Kerry (D-Massachusetts). The group spent 75 minutes repeatedly and sharply telling Senator Kerry that the Bush tax cuts should expire.
“He told us a number of things that I would put in a disturbing category,” says Saperstein. “We told him the Bush tax cuts should not be restored. That’s our main point. He tried to sell us on the idea of reducing the top tax rates from 35 percent down to 28 percent. He tried to make the argument that it could be made up by closing loopholes elsewhere. We were astonished by that.”
