Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    If they do away with Federal Estate Tax, it will eliminate the incentive for the rich to donate to charities and set up charitable foundations. Their families can keep as much money as they want with no consequences. Think of the various Lutheran Foundations, Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Bill and Melissa Gates Foundation, etc.. Of course the GOP will say it gives them more to donate, just like Trickle Down economics, it won't happen.

    Frank, you are incorrect and obviously uninformed. By the way, Frank, those dreaded Republicans donate more to charities than Democrats and that doesn't include the super rich. Republicans are more generous with their charitable contributions. Democrats just like the government to fund charitable enterprises in the form of federal grants.
    If the Senate passes the bill, it will go to conference committee, which includes members of the house and senate. This will allow negotiations and compromise to put a final bill before the house and senate for a vote. This is a very normal procedure for passing bills.

    Ron, I'm informed. Your tricking the public, like the GOP. Check the CBO non-partisan report.

    Ron, Just in case you are not aware, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet the largest contributors in America, are probably Democrats. My comment about the tax bill's effect was to let the Concordia Seminary/Foundation know that contributions might be changed by the Bill. Pure education. Not partisan crap.
