This isn't a close call, anyone who says it is, is lying, if you follow liars, you get channeled off into no where land and the rich win and just keep getting richer.

" Today, 233 of them —along with 7 Democrats — lined up to approve a full repeal of the estate tax, a measure that would benefit about 5,400 taxpayers a year, or roughy 0.2 percent of survivors, while costing the Treasury $269 billion over a decade."

6 years of Trilions in handouts, and now a giant tax break. Sounds about right. The votes keep coming for them, why would they reverse course?

Welcome to the corporate state.

I'm sure if you can only get more Dems in there, maybe we can do 7 years of free cash for them next time!!

So about 3% of the Dems voted for this and 97% against while the GOP about 99% was for it, I know math is hard and thinking even harder, but what do you think of that math?
