"BAT, RIP? That’s what some people are claiming," writes Heritage expert Adam Michel. "And with good reason. The border adjustment tax (BAT), a controversial proposal to remake the corporate income tax, has divided prominent economists, tax experts, and industry groups.

This week on Heritage's Mass Ave podcast we analyze this week's activity on Capitol Hill, including former FBI director James Comey's testimony before Congress. Also, Heritage legal expert Hans von Spakovsky shares his perspective, and Heritage tax expert Adam Michel on the state of tax reform.
“Overall, the Senate bill is better than Obamacare because it contains provisions to reduce insurance premiums and promote access to insurance in the short run; cut taxes; and provide major Medicaid reform that will help refocus the program to those most in need,” says Heritage expert Bob Moffit. “The Senate should go further by expanding states’ options to encourage continuous coverage and by providing additional Medicaid reforms.”
