9. And yet, The Seattle Times is all in favor of it.
They inexplicably endorsed incumbent GOP Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8).

Actually, it's not inexplicable at all:

Check out the press release from Reichert's office:

Rep. Dave Reichert (WA-08) voted yesterday to approve H.R. 5638, the Permanent Estate Tax Relief Act of 2006, which will provide permanent estate tax relief. . . .

"It is simply unconscionable that the federal government levies a tax upon the passing of a loved one - a tax on money that has already been taxed, I might add," Rep. Reichert said. . . . "Permanent relief from the death tax is important for family-owned businesses such as the Seattle Times Company, a fourth- and fifth-generation family business that is a fixture in our area. By approving this important measure, we are once again taking bold action to reduce unnecessary and unjust taxation on the American people."
