To ask how that tax has been recast as the murder of all that's American (think of the family farms!!!! what family farms?)
So because the tax system has succeeded in destroying most of America's family farms it's OK now because there aren't any left? Huh?
I think it's ridiculous that most of the family farms left have had to incorporate, hire accountanting firms and use all the sneaky tricks just to stay in business and keep their land. The estate tax burden is a lot less on 1/6th of a farm when a stockholder dies and it's easier to get loans to cover it.
Also beware of statistics because some sources like to say family farms have vanished and all that's left is corporate farming. Are they counting family owned corporations as family or corporate?
