Good Sense on the Business Page

The Kansas City Star's business page is usually a sheet of lay-offs, stock quotes and right-wing trickle-down conservatism. That's why it's particularly gratifying to see a bit of truth and common sense appear there this morning.

Columnis Floyd Norris addresses the Republicans' attempt to repeal the Estate Tax. In a nutshell, the Republicans are trying to give the absolute pinnacle of their country club society a $280 billion gift, in the form of a tax break for dead multi-millionaires.

At a time when many in our country are suffering, I think we can move dead multi-millionaires a couple notches down on the list of targets for compassion.
