Megyn Kelly, Anthony Weiner Battle Over Tax Cut Deal

Megyn Kelly got into a heated argument with Rep. Anthony Weiner over President Obama's tax cut deal with Republicans.

The two kept talking over each other as they tried to make their respective points. Kelly kept asking Weiner -- one of many House Democrats to express deep dissatisfaction with the deal -- what, exactly, Obama could have done to get a better deal, besides "bang his head against the wall" that is the Senate Republican caucus.

Weiner, for his part, insisted that Obama could have attacked the tax issue in a much more aggressive political way than he did, and that he had made a grave mistake about an issue that the American public supported him on.

But it was the issue of the estate tax that really got the two going. Kelly asked why it was so unreasonable to want lower taxes on your estate.

"You aren't paying anything in that case because you'll be dead," Weiner replied. The conversation only went downhill from there. At one point, Weiner actually turned away from the camera and sighed, frustrated that he couldn't seem to get a word in edgewise. "Ready?" he said sarcastically after Kelly had finished her question.
