Why else would they be working this hard on an amendment that won’t pass? They won’t get 67 votes in the Senate. They won’t get 37 States to ratify it. But if you look at Google News you can see the following:
|1,880 news articles for:||Estate Tax|
|3,530 news articles for:||
|9,690 news articles for:||gay marriage|
|7,420 news articles for:||
same sex marriage
So it looks like something that won’t pass is getting four times the coverage of something that will pass.
