Maria Cantwell, Patty Murray and the Right Wing Agenda

Last week, 10 Democratic Senators joined the Republicans (roll call) in decreasing the estate tax. They upped the minimum to a $5 million estate for individuals and $10 million for couples, and lowered the rates.

Kudos to the NYT editorial page for listing all 10 names.

In addition to some of the Dems you might expect, Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray joined team Right Wing.

It's good news for the Microsoft, Weyerhaeuser and former WaMu execs and a few others; bad news for the rest of their constituents.
