Ramsey: ‘Death Tax’ Will Soon Meet the Reaper

Statement from Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, April 27, 2012: 

Lt. Governor Ramsey Made the Following Statement Following Senate Passage of HB3760:

“The American Dream — working hard to provide for your family — is not a dream that ends in death. Taxing those who have worked their whole lives to build and sustain a small farm or business in order to pass it on to the next generation is not just carrying out bad policy — it is acting in bad faith. By passing this bill today on the Senate floor, we have ushered this immoral, unfair tax up to Death’s door. When Bill Haslam adds his signature, the death tax in Tennessee will have met the reaper. I applaud the Governor, Speaker Harwell and all who have worked hard to make this possible. This is a good day for Tennessee.”
