The Senate's "Good Egg" on the Estate Tax

Julio 27, 2010

Bernie SandersWell, we can say that there is at least one good egg in the Senate. Bernie Sanders called out the hypocrisy of the born again deficit hawks who – just nine years ago – were telling us that “deficits don’t matter." Two wars, two huge sets of tax cuts and a spate of record setting debt accumulation later, we are now in a hole that only leaders as outspoken and honest as Sanders can get us out of.

His recently proposed Responsible Estate Tax Act would be a great way to raise much needed revenue in a way that would only affect multi-millionaires and billionaires. The so-called deficit hawks seem to have a problem with it.
