Fake News

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Estate Tax Cut? How Can They?

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Come on righties, wake up. The Estate Tax only affects 1% of our population and yet we see the GOP trying really, really hard to repeal it. The repeal would cost around $1 Trillion (that's with a T) over the first decade. This decade, when many boomers ...
