Ari & I: April 9, 2001

Russell Mokhiber

Mokhiber: Ari, the President has said that we are going to get rid of the death tax "to keep farms in the family."

Yesterday, the New York Times, on the front page, ran an article, quoting tax experts saying they have never found a farm lost because of estate taxes.

They quote -- even the American Farm Bureau Federation, which supports repeal -- saying they could not cite a single instance of a farm lost because of estate taxes.
