The U.S. Senate killed a bill backed by President George W. Bush that would have permanently repealed estate taxes.

The Senate vote of 57-41 was three shy of the 60 needed for the measure to advance. The House of Representatives had previously passed a bill to wipe out what Republicans call the “death tax.”

As Oprah Winfrey’s character “Ms Sofia” says in THE COLOR PURPLE, “dey is a gawd, dey is a gawd!”
