Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 08:20 PM by LSK
Frist is bringing it up now.

H.R.5970

To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to increase the unified credit
against the estate tax to an exclusion equivalent of $5,000,000,to repeal
the sunset provision for the estate and generation-skipping taxes,and
to extend expiring provisions,and for other purposes.

Here are the house votes:

impact the vote. It will count as a NO.

73. That is the only way to bring up reconsideration of a bill
is to cast your vote on the winning side. Frist has done this several times this year already, even changing his vote at the last minute to get on the "winning" side.

84. I would dearly love to know their reasoning. Who is Byrd trying
to appease? Was it the min. wage part of it?

On the other side of that coin, is Nelson-Fl, trying to appease a rich base?

I'm not getting it.
