Sorry, short on time. Looks like House Dems have votes to prevent passage of tax act in the Congress. See very interesting tally of votes at The Hill.
Game of chicken now on between them versus the Republicans in Congress and their own President in the White House. Sticking point most of all the high estate tax exemption and low rate. They may all settle at $3.5M and 45 percent if the Dems stick to their guns. Not likely they will not however.
