Death Tax

|

Death and taxes are inevitable, but death taxes are not. Indeed the long fight to end the death tax may be in its final round. Last week Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., told a gathering of conservative activists that he will bring death tax repeal to the Senate floor for a vote in May. The announcement was the biggest applause line in his speech and the free market movement is energized and ready to make this the year this hated tax is finally repealed for good.

This would be an enormous victory for the economy - as the confiscatory death tax is a job destroyer and a wrecker of family businesses.

For the first time in decades, Republicans in Congress have an opportunity to entirely repeal a federal tax—squish it like a bug.

We are speaking of the death tax, which has been around for about 90 years and now could finally be permanently banished. This would be an enormous victory for the economy—as the confiscatory death tax is a job destroyer and a wrecker of family businesses. Politically, this would also be a huge coup for Republicans if they can prevail, as death tax repeal has been one of the GOP’s signature promises.
