H.R. 4154

The House is about to try to make the death tax permanent.

Under current law, the death tax will disappear at the end of the month and those who pass away in 2010 will pay zero taxes on savings they want to leave to their children.

But H.R. 4154 would swoop in at the last minute and levy a huge 45 percent tax, permanently.

The death tax is fundamentally a moral issue.

We do not believe that death should be a taxable event.

The Founders of our country believed this so strongly that they included a clause in the Constitution that forbids seizing an estate at death as a punishment for treason.

Tell U.S. Representative Baron Hill to let it expire as scheduled, and don't punish those of us who play by the rules!
