H.R. 4154 would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to repeal the new carryover basis rules in order to prevent tax increases and the imposition of compliance burdens on many more estates than would benefit from repeal, to retain the estate tax with a $3,500,000 exemption.

Bottom line - the estate tax is WRONG! UNCONSTITUTIONAL! and should be repealed - if it was ever even real law to begin with.

Because an heir is bequeathed private property - WHERE is the authority of the Government to seize that property???? The 16th Amerndment was never ratified so THAT's out. Where's the law that gives the Govt the authority?????? That should be every American's question.
