  • 15: On the Motion to Suspend Rule 22: H.R. 4213 - To allow the estate tax to continue to be expiredNay

    Key Vote 15: On the Motion to Suspend Rule 22: H.R. 4213 - To allow the estate tax to continue to be expired

    This rather technical procedural vote would have required language preventing an increase in the estate tax from being included in the bill. The "death tax" taxes income that has already been tax multiple times beforehand, and penalizes individuals who choose to save their money responsibly, or who wish to pass along their farm or small business to another generation of the family.
