Because Congress is letting Federal inheritance taxes take up to 55% of the worth of a family estate. some folks are considering their own early demise to keep the family farm in the family.
CHEYENNE — U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis says some of her Wyoming constituents are so worried about the reinstatement of federal estate taxes that they plan to discontinue dialysis and other life-extending medical treatments so they can die before Dec. 31.
Lummis, a Republican who holds her state’s lone seat in the House, declined to name any of the people who have made the comments.
But she said many ranchers and farmers in the state would rather pass along their businesses — “their life’s work” — to their children and grandchildren than see the federal government take a large chunk.
The Congress creatures don’t have a clue why the church going, gun clingers are angry.
Direct taxes were prohibited under Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Since that is the case, since the required number of states to ratify the 16th Amendment was never met, since no law was found to mandate payment of income taxes, then we are not really required to pay them.
