    Another bill that will only benefit the richest of the rich. Do you know that the estate tax only applies to millionaires? Meanwhile, this will continue to increase our deficit, which is already at $1.2 trillion. The republicans are running on a platform of reducing the deficit, but all these tax cuts for the rich are only increasing the deficit. Extending the Bush tax cuts for the rich increased the deficit by $800 billion. And it’s not like this will actually create jobs. If cutting taxes for the rich created jobs, we would have seen massive job GROWTH over the course of the Bush presidency, not massive job LOSS.

    I am tired of people saying " the rich"! We are hard working Americans who’s parents and grandparents struggled to tame the west and ranch. Unfortunalety our land holdings put us in this estate tax bracket and with the passing of each generation more land has to be sold to pay the estate taxes. It takes over 100 acrres in our dry barren land to produce a cow calf pair so the amount of land is very important to our operation. A lot of these laws that are supposed to gouge the richest Americans are in reality gouging others. We haven’t worked all of our lives to give to the government we have worked to leave a legacy for our children and grand children. At the current rate our children will be left with such a tax they will have to sell 1/2 of our land leaving them without enough to ranch at all! Thanks for trying to take what four generations worked so hard to achieve.

    the estate tax effects less than 1,000 people. The idea that family farms are the main target is laughable.

    So your parents and grandparents worked hard, right? not you?

    as a side note, whatever happened to being able to vote down a comment. It looks like now all we can do is give a positive rating. Why did open congress do this??
