Iowa’s Senior Senator, Chuck Grassley, thinks that getting rid of the estate tax will help people who are investing instead of everyday Iowans.
Apparently he thinks we should be working harder instead of “just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies.”
Tuesday, December 5th at 5 pm we will be gathering outside the Senator’s offices at the Federal Building in Des Moines or 531 Commercial Street in downtown Waterloo… along with our empty booze bottles… to talk about what Iowans really need.
The FACTS are, according to IRS data from the past 5 years, out of around 1.4 million Iowans who file federal tax returns, the number who paid the estate tax ranged from 32 in 2012 to 61 in 2015… and most of them were not farmers or small business owners.
So we want to know, what are YOU spending your hard-earned pennies on?
We will be forwarding the results to Senator Grassley to let him know what Iowans are really doing with their money.
