On September 22, 2010, the NY Post published Middle, class, estate tax cuts on tap in Senate, by Josh Kosman:
Sen. Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, may introduce a bill as early as today that would include a permanent middle-class tax cut and a reduction in estate taxes, The Post has learned. . . .
Baucus, a Democrat from Montana, is hoping that including the estate tax provision will garner a few votes from Republicans or more conservative Democrats.
