Senate Will Tax You Even When You're Dead
Immediate Release. June 17, 2002 Since the estate
tax revenue yield is negligible, the Senate once again proved that its
main purpose is self-empowerment of individual senators and the continued
socialization of the U.S. by the redistribution of income as it failed
to permanently repeal this tax burden.
death taxes punish the very people they are intended to help such as
women, minorities, farmers, workers, and low income people.
Furthermore, death taxes undermine savings and investments and
are the most expensive taxes to pay while being the most costly for
the government to collect.
the estate tax hurts people for their virtue.
The majority of the burden of the estate tax falls not on those
who have been lucky throughout their lives but instead on those who
have been frugal. “The object lesson for the American people
is that your money is not your own, it’s the governments,” said Dr.
Joel Rutkowski, president of the American Voice Institute of Public
Policy. “When they want to expand their big government
pork programs, they will just reach down into your pockets and take
it away. And whoever said that
once you die you don’t have to pay taxes, is wrong now.”
