    I haven’t been able to find what the reason is that proponents and so-called or self-described “rich” are are not already sending to the state the additional funds they would be taxed if I-1098 passes?

  2. Bill Gates Sr was an estate tax lawyer and he spent his entire career helping his clients avoid paying taxes. I wonder what those clients think of him now.
