On June 18, 2010, Jay Heflin posted Grassley accuses Democrats of slow-walking estate tax fix, On The Money: The Hill's Finance & Economy Blog.
 Heflin writes, “this week accused Democratic leaders of foot-dragging when it comes to fixing the estate tax.” For a link to the full text of Sen. Grassley’s floor speech to the Senate, or to watch a video of it, see my earlier post, On Wednesday, June 16, 2010, Senator Grassley called again for repeal of the estate tax.
 Heflin writes, “Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) is equally troubled by the fate of the estate tax even though his chamber passed legislation that could keep the tax increase from happening. His chamber moved a bill that applies a 45 percent tax on estates worth over $3.5 million for individuals and $7 million for couples.” For a video of Rep. Pascrell’s support of H.R. 4154, see my earlier post, On December 28, 2009, Rep. Bill Pascrell [D-NJ] posted a video on YouTube that shows his December 3, 2009 talk, on the floor of the House, in support of H.R. 4154.
 Heflin writes, “Sens. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) are expected to offer an amendment in the upcoming debate on small business legislation that would tax estates worth more than $5 million at a 35 percent rate.” Sen. Kyl has been working hard to gather support for lower estate tax, but has had limited success. I have categories set up for Sen. Kyl and for Sen. Lincoln. These categories aggregated my posts that mention these senators: Sen. Jon Kyl [R-AZ], Sen. Blanche Lincoln [D-AR].
