Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Clinton Loves The Death Tax – Just Not For Her

Hillary Clinton  has long been a supporter of the death tax, which takes huge amounts from inheritances of middle-class Americans and small-business owners.

During her time in the Senate, she supported no fewer than four separate attempts to either raise the exemption level for the death tax or eliminate it altogether.

But as Americans for Tax Reform reports, her own tax dealings show a perfectly legal, but shockingly hypocritical, dodge of the death tax she loves so much.

Back on 2010, the Clintons created trusts and shifted ownership of their New York home into it to avoid the death tax.

“To reduce the tax pinch, the Clintons are using financial planning strategies befitting the top 1 percent of U.S. households in wealth. These moves, common among multimillionaires, will help shield some of their estate from the tax that now tops out at 40 percent of assets upon death.”

And while Clinton has no issues trying to hide her money away, you – the small business owner – must pay the death tax while she will not.

Here are the bills that would have increased the exemption for the death tax or eliminated it altogether:

  • In 2001, Clinton voted no on H.R. 1836, “the Economic Growth and Tax Reconciliation Act,” which contained a series of tax cuts, one of which increased the Death Tax exemption level to $3.5 million.
  • In 2005, Clinton voted no on H.R. 8, “the Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act of 2005,” which fully repealed the Death Tax.
  • In 2006, Clinton voted no on H.R. 5970, “the Estate Tax and Extension of Tax Relief Act of 2006,” which increased the Death Tax exemption level to $5 million.
  • In 2008, Clinton voted no on S.Amdt.4191, legislation to increase the Death Tax exemption level to $5 million.

This type of hypocracy is nothing new in Clinton World, but it’s always shocking to see.
