An end to docility will have to be seen to be believed. At present, it looks a lot like the "moderate Republican Senators" mirage. Where are they actually exercising any influence? Where is there an actual break on anything that matters?


The rubber hits the road with the estate tax. If moderate Republicans with brains aren't bold enough to disregard the utterly miniscule constituency fighting the "death" tax then they are not worth a shit. I heard Senator Frist spewing nonsense about small farmers and such just before Katrina hit. People with that kind of wealth (numerous sitting Senators included) deserve to be penalized if they aren't creative enough to do something productive with their holdings within the parameters of the existing estate tax laws. It can't be that hard.
