U.S. Senate Candidate Scott Howell had a chance to explain to representatives of the business community this morning his position on the nation’s debt crisis. The Democrat was the only U.S. Senate candidate present at a forum hosted by the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce. GOP Incumbent Orrin Hatch declined to attend the gathering and third party candidates were not invited.
Howell says the federal government can increase revenue and cut spending by first supporting the Buffett rule, which is a $47 million tax increase on the nation’s wealthiest households.
