Demint Legislation Introduced on Death Tax


From the desk of Dick Patton to my email to YOU…

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) – a longtime death tax repeal ally and signer of AFBI’s “Death Tax Repeal Pledge” – has just introduced permanent repeal legislation.

Yesterday afternoon Senator DeMint introduced an amendment to the small business bill to make death tax repeal permanent. We understand that this legislation could come up for a vote, and soon.

This is a huge development.

With Senator DeMint’s legislation, we will be able to force all 100 members of the U.S. Senate to go on the record for or against permanent death tax repeal. Senators who vote no but claim to support small business and job creation will have a lot of explaining to do this November.

Perhaps even more important, this legislation will provide the contrast to Senator Bernie Sanders’ (D-VT) proposal for a 65% death tax.

This should be interesting.
