The Prince and the Pauper 
Republicans, once again, are trying to do something to halt death and taxes and as always their concern is for the super rich rather than real Americans.  Case in point, the millions of autistic kids whose parents will try to set them up with benefits from life insurance will lose all of their inheritance if they are barely getting by on state assistance.  Meanwhile, Republicans are feverishly working to make sure Paris Hilton gets every penny of the billions of dollars that will be left to her because obviously the suffering would be unbearable.
