Biblical Tax Relief #4
Bush Plan Will Eliminate "Death Tax"!

A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children (Pr 13:22a). "Every family, every farmer and small businessperson should be free to pass on their life's work to those they love. So we will abolish the death tax"
(George W. Bush, GOP National Convention see http://www.washtimes.com/national/transcript-200084205142.htm ).


President Bush's proposed plan is the most comprehensive, Biblically sound tax cut plan offered by any president in modern American history. One key element of his plan is the complete elimination of the inheritance tax, often called the "death tax." (See overview by Rep. Steve Largent (R-OK) < http://www.washtimes.com/op-ed/ed-column-2001213193534.htm >). Christian activists have sought for decades to see the death tax eliminated. It defies God's law by robbing the dead and by disinheriting the children and grandchildren of faithful, hardworking people. As in communism, it presumes that a man's wealth belongs to the state, not to him and his family. It taxes, for the second time, income the dead earned while living to acquire the assets left behind. Many farmers and small businessmen have left substantial estates taxed at a rate as high as 60%. Their family heirs have been forced to liquidate these farms and/or businesses to pay for taxes. This is not only tragic it is unjust and wicked.

Heavenly Father, thank You for George W. Bush, a principled man, who IS DOING RIGHT to eliminate this UNRIGHTEOUS TAX. Cause Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, to EMBRACE it WHOLEHEARTEDLY & to PASS it without modification. May Your people be enabled to leave an inheritance to their children and grandchildren as your Word teaches. In Jesus' Name. Amen (Gen 48:4-33; Dt 12:15-17; 19:14; 27:3-11; Nu 36:1-12; Eze 46:18; 2 Cor 12:14).
