Reporting the Death Tax II
Looks like we can add the Washington Post to the sorry list of major news outlets who report on the estate tax without revealing the actual rate of confiscation. The Post is even worse than the Times, saying little beyond referring to GOP efforts to permanently cut "the estate taxes for wealthy Americans." The story doesn't even explain the level of assets at which the tax kicks in, or that it applies to family-owned farms and businesses, not just to some abstraction of "the wealthy." Shameful.
