"Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) has predicted for months that the GOP tax plan he helped craft would play a major role in his reelection campaign. But with November fast approaching, it’s his opponent who seems more interested in talking about the issue.

Roskam was a key architect of the law as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee’s Subcommittee on Tax Policy. He helped develop the law’s contours and was one of its most vocal defenders throughout the process, speaking on TV and at press conferences to sell the bill.

But Roskam has yet to air a single ad touting the law he helped craft. And his challenger, businessman Sean Casten (D), is now on the air slamming Roskam for the legislation."
