Sebastian Mallaby has a column in today’s paper properly lambasting Congress for abolishing the estate tax, which it appears set to do. It’s a good column. And it runs through many of the almost innumerable good reasons for opposing abolition.
But I’m writing with a specific request. I’m interested in some play-by-play on how this shakes out in the Senate this week. And I’m curious whether anyone out there might be interested in blogging about this over at TPMCafe. You don’t need any fancy initials after your name. Just a solid understanding of the policy issues at stake and a grasp of who’s who in Congress — enough to give us a clear sense of what’s happening, who’s wavering, etc.
If you’re interested, drop me a note to the comments email.
