    Kyl---Who gives a dung about the exemptions for those that can afford a Tax of Millions. Those are the same ones that owe Millions in overdue Tax's. The disfunctional Congress is pressing the Constituants for Campaign Contrubutions, while the working families are watching the future Tax rate on them going through the roof. Put the lame-blame on the President, BULL,! Congress has to pass the Bill before the President can do any thing to change, modify, pass or veto the Bill.Our fine Congressman Flake is more worried about taking your job, than worring about his WORKING Constituants.
    It is my hope, prayer and desire to see every Incombant Voted out and Moral, decent and Ethical Individuals put in place.If Voters would look at the record of those that are in office, they will see that the will of the Voters is secondairy to the Demands of the Parties (BOTH)! In this Blog we see different people spew non-particent words, while at the same time pulling the reader to their Party side.Republicans--- for the wealthy, Tax releif to those making over the reasonable figures. Democrats---for the working and poor ,, give them back a little of what the wealthy force them to pay.Independants----made up of those that spew the distaste for what the Parties call Ideals. Spew is all they do, they still maintain the Party loyalty they have.Independants are, suppose, to be the BI-PARTESENT, middle of the road, ones that work both sides to come to a reasonable settlement. Never happen.

    Thus, family farmers and small businesses owners — our chief job creators — would be hit hardest by this tax hike. Despite 42 consecutive months of unemployment over 8 percent, the president seems more concerned about promoting redistributionist policies that “spread the wealth” than protecting America’s job creators.

    To be clear, I strongly believe that the death tax must be repealed permanently, and I support legislation to do just that. It’s wrong for the government to tax people twice, once when they earn their money and once when they give it away. But in the meantime, we should, at a minimum, keep the current death tax rate and exemption in place.

    If not, the effects of an increased death tax are painfully predictable: family farms will likely be sold off, businesses will be splintered, jobs will be lost, and Americans will be robbed of their ability to pass on hard-earned savings to future generations.

    Did you read that AL.

    Why in god's name is there even a death TAX. Your dead and your still taxed. That is just plain wrong and the family suffers.

    Let's just Tax everything, your air you breath, your Laughter (even though there is not much of that lately) what a bunch of crock.

    Oh I hate the Government and Politics.

    The estate tax for husband and wife for 2012 is anything OVER $10 million dollars. If the estate tax is to be changed in 2013, what is kyl doing about it,other than compaining. I thought we sent him to Washington to get things done. As long as the Republican do nothing congress refuses to legislate anything other than 80 anti-abortion bills or 30 defunding Planned Parenthood bills,America will go off the fiscal cliff.

    Typical Kyl. Blame Obama. Talk about a disfunctional congress.
