WASHINGTON - While Congress waits to vote on President Obama's tax cut package, East Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert is speaking out against part of that deal... the estate tax.
Some say the "estate" tax... others say the "death" tax. But no matter what you call it, the law allows the federal government to continue to dip into the pockets of the wealthy even after they're dead and one Texas lawmaker is saying "enough."
Now that the senate has voted for President Obama's more than $ 800 billion dollar tax bill, America's eyes look toward the House.
But East Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert says there's been a lot of worry on Capitol Hill, during the wait.
