It’s outrageous! President Obama has announced a tax deal with Republicans that further weakens the estate tax. In the deal, Democrats would accept the Lincoln/Kyl estate tax bill, with a $5 million exemption per spouse and 35% tax rate, for two years.
The deal would make the estate tax even weaker than it was under President Bush, and the weakest it has been in seven decades.
The deal includes some important tax credits for lower income people and an extension of unemployment benefits. But overall, this deal is no compromise. It gives away too much and gets too little in return. This deal is unacceptable.
