Kill the Death Tax

Tony Perkins: “If this President gets his way, the meek won’t inherit the earth — the U.S. government will! That’s because our current tax code never says die, even when the person it’s taxing does. Thanks to the ‘death tax,’ Americans have been mourning the loss, not just of their loved ones, but of the assets they spent their whole life building. To cushion the blow, the new Republican majority is doing its best to give America some relief by introducing the ‘Death Tax Repeal Act of 2015.’ … Under the current system, the government takes a slice of the money, income, or property when it’s transferred from a deceased family member to the beneficiary. It’s especially outrageous when you consider that this is money that’s already been taxed when it’s earned! … Will Rogers once said, ‘The difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.’ Well, death may not get worse, but it certainly gets more expensive. And it’s time for our leaders to do something about it.”
