The tax cut

She's undoubtedly keeping her powder dry for the biggest giveaway to the wealthy of them all -- her burning desire to repeal the estate tax and award a multi-billion-dollar windfall on the 18 wealthy families, Waltons among them, that have been spending millions to push this outrage through Congress.
