I wanted to mention to everyone that their is a Canadian parlimentary delegation visting the Washington this week. I suspect they have probably already arrived and have been told tax issues are going to be on agenda. Supposedly John Williamson who in the past has raised FBAR-Tax Issues in the House of Commons is one of the members on the trip. According to what I have found the first part of the visit is going to spent at the winter meetings of the National Governors Assoication then on the Thursday and Friday they will be up on the Hill. My suggestion would be to any of who are involved the US side of things to encourage any sympathetic members of Congress (not sure there are any) who might not necessarily be interested in US Canada relations to attend this meeting. I know Carolyn Maloney was an attendee at last years meeting (nothing to do with ACA from all appearances) along with Gregory Meeks. In general looking at the last years attendee list it was pretty heavy Republican with Maloney being one of the few Democrats although Jack Reed of Reed amendment fame of all people was there. There was no discussion of tax though last year. One thing to note is with the Keystone Pipeline being as hot button of an issue as it is I suspect the Conservative Republican presence will be huge. (I noted with interest that Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was an attendee last year).
Here is a link to last years attendees:
