The Sequester Replacement Act of 2012

1. Amendment Offered by Mr. Van Hollen. This amendment proposed replacing the $1.2 trillion sequester with an increase in taxes on domestic oil companies, U.S. businesses with international operations, and individuals with annual income greater than $1,000,000.  The amendment proposes to reduce spending by eliminating unspecified waste and duplicative programs; eliminating direct payments to farmers; reforming the Federal Flood Insurance Program; and selling unspecified federal property.  The amendment also proposes to increase spending on education, science, infrastructure, and the Internal Revenue Service to close the “tax gap.”
