There currently is a debate in Congress about the future of the expired estate tax law.

Are The Boomers Being Culled ?

Gotta wonder is there isn't a degree of culling going on with the boomers.

Obama is on the right not the left

Obama is NEVER going to go left because he IS a right.

All of the clues are there to prove this.

His performance as President of the Harvard Law Review.

His campain promises to the banksters and against single payer health care.

His statements and actions so far as president.

His lack of performance regarding the oil spill.

There are no real signs of left leaning in him.

A second term will only open the floodgates of his inner conservative.

But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
