526,421 family farms threatened by new death tax – Washington Examiner

December 13, 2012

According to the The Washington Examiner:

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.

According to the analysis from the Senate Republican Policy Committee, chaired by Wyoming’s John Barrasso:

…the federal government will begin taking more than half the value of family farm estates exceeding $1 million beginning next year….

This would economically devastate rural communities.

    Members of the House still have time (although it is quickly dwindling) to work at changing this language – that is, if it seriously concerns them. It is not yet 1-1-13.

    More importantly, the Anker painting of "Girl Peeling Potatoes" must bring back fond memories for so many who visit this site. A truly wonderful choice!
