    People have trouble with the truth.
    The article is spot on. People ridiculed the Bush tax cuts as giveaways to the rich (they always do). Now we will see what their repeal will mean.

    Yes but spin and a different political impression when you say repeal.
    They will go away if congress doesn't act, not go away because congress does act.

    The estate tax isn't ZERO.
    Congress doesn't control STATE AND LOCAL SALES TAXES.

    Man, the WJS editors need to wake up, that's all I have say about this article.

    We lost a lot of tax deductions under Reagan as well. Did the right whine about that then? I don't recall it.
