Excellent Analysis of the Chaos in Congress at talkingmemopoints.com

Filed under: estate tax,Kevin Staker — Kevin Staker @ 11:41 pm

There is an excellent analysis at chaos in Congress, most notably even among the Democrats themselves, on the tax issues.  It is at http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/11/dems-out-of-sync-on-tax-cut-strategy.php

The key points, I believe are:

The real battle will be to get 60 votes to overcome a filibuster in the Senate.

Along that line then, what, if anything, the House does will be irrelevant.

Amazing really that the Democrats cannot craft a compromise now to get the 60 votes, especially on at least the estate tax.
