The conference, led by Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Richard Neal, wants to raise the corporate rate to 26.5% as part of nearly $3 trillion in tax increases to defray the cost of the spending package, which include such progressive initiatives as expanding government-backed health care and green energy programs.

Neil also wants to increase the top tax rate for individuals to 39.6%, according to Politico.
