Response to FBaggins (Reply #41)

42. Since the purpose of the legislation...

... was to make tax returns "private" (they weren't before) what would it mean for Congress not to have the power to do so? It would mean mean that Congress could not so protect them, and that the executive branch could do what they want with them.

And since they don't involve executive branch policy deliberations, and since most of them would be preelection, executive privilege would not apply. So the request would be a normal request for government records for normal legislative oversight.

I don't see how that is going to help.
