Let the Rich Pay Taxes, Too
- Issue: The U.S. Senate is expected to vote on a proposal to repeal the estate tax sometime in May. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tennessee) has pledged to bring permanent repeal of the estate tax up for a vote, which may occur as early as the week of May 8. Full repeal will likely fall short of the 60 votes needed to pass.
