New legislation that jumps the death tax to 55 percent of estates exceeding $1 million threatens 526,421 family farms, of about 25 percent of all farms in America, according to a Senate analysis.
Looks like Democratic Party funders George, and Warren, must be interested in acquiring some blocks of land on the cheap. S.3412 was indeed passed by Party-line with Stabenow, and Levin voting Yea. And, to think that re-elected moron, Alan Grayson's imbecile rhetoric used against Republicans, now similarly places over a half million family farms in jeopardy. Don't get sick - Don't Die - or Democrats will tax your property away from your heirs.
Congratulations, you voted for it! Ironic, yes? Shouldn't be to anyone by now.
...a government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have. - President Gerald R. Ford
