Ancient Scottish Barony Title for sale. There are about 100 Scottish feudal baronies that still exist; only a handful are from the very ancient Baronage of the Isles, as this one is.

Consequently, taxes on working people are proposed to be raised, albeit indirectly: those fortunate enough to own a home will no longer get a tax deduction for home mortgage interest.
Workers with employee health care will see their health care taxed as income [!].
The federal gas tax will be doubled.
And lastly, the federal workforce will be reduced by about 200,000 by 2015, while those who are retired will see their pensions reduced.

Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO, responded to the commissions proposals by saying:

The problems won’t be fixed – they will just get worse as we head for QE3. That’s because there is no solution short of purging the system, which they know has to be done in time.
