Well, some in Washington are at least trying to put more money back in the taxpayers’ pockets, but it’s not likely they’ll succeed in this particular effort.  The House voted last week to repeal the federal estate tax, also known as the “death tax” and currently pegged at 40% of inherited assets, by a vote of 240 – 179.  The repeal was filed by Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX) and brought to the floor by House Ways & Means Chairman Representative Paul Ryan (2012 Romney running mate).  Notwithstanding the final vote, Senate Democrats are expected to block consideration and the White House has promised a veto should the repeal find enough support to make it through Congress.
