This is in response to John P. Warner's letter of July 7 about the Senate's tax reform effort. Although Mr. Warner correctly identifies the compromises that have altered the substance of the bill, he wrongly places the blame solely on the shoulders of our senatorial representatives.
Belying the common impression, senators do not make only self-serving decisions. Like all of us, senators are anxious to keep their jobs. A large part of that involves listening to lobbyists representing large constituent bases in their home states.
