Are you aware that the so-called "Death Tax" was created as a short-time event. It has been instituted four times in US history. Each time it was a reaction to prepare for a conflict and was supposed to be a short-term event. However the Progressives used it 95 years ago to "prepare for World War I" AND NEVER repealed it because they like a regressive tax.
This tax is hurtful AND mean-spirited against senior citizens. (Recall that Progressives always claim to be looking out for the little guy). Yeah, right! This tax is morally indefensible. And yet, Progressives continue to literally SCREW seniors by taxing them twice on the same earnings. Once when they are alive and one more time when they are dead. That's not only UNFAIR, it's downright despicable.
The good news is that Senator John Thune (R, SD) has introduced a bill called the "Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act of 2013." This proposed legislation removes the Death Tax (alias the "estate tax".)
Tell your Senators to give their support to this discriminatory tax and get rid of it once and for all!
