The "Death Tax" Con


Public Citizen has uncovered a decade-long$30 million stealth campaign by eighteen of the richest families in America — including the clans behind Wal Mart, Campbell's Soup, and M&M's — to repeal the estate tax. You know the myth that the "death tax" affects small business owners and family farmers? They started it. If these fattest of cats succeed in gaining a permanent repeal of the tax, it would be worth more than $70 billion to their families' heirs alone — and rob the federal treasury of more than $1 trillion overall.
