Bush Tax Plan is a Winner

Land Rights Group Supports Bush Tax Plan
Monday, March 5, 2001
Contact: Mike Hardiman
The American Land Rights Association (ALRA) announced its support today
President Bush's Tax Relief Plan, in particular proposed repeal of
inheritance tax, better known as the "death tax."
"President Bush's plan phases out the death tax over eight years,
repealing it completely," said Chuck Cushman, ALRA Executive
"That is great news for all small businesses, including farms
that are family owned and want to pass it on to the next
Cushman agreed with President Bush, who has pointed out that there is a
very strong case for a tax cut bill for several reasons.
These include that federal taxes are the highest ever during peacetime,
Americans pay more in taxes than they spend on food, clothing and housing
combined, and Americans work more than four months of the year just to pay
their combined federal and non-federal tax bills.
"There are several other provisions that will help self-employed people
small businesses, such as a reduction in the marriage tax, raising
limit on IRA contributions, and reducing and simplifying income tax
"This package will be a great benefit that will help both our short term
economic situation and long term economic security," Cushman added.
ALRA is a nationwide organization of small property owners founded in 1978.
It advocates private property rights and recreational and commercial
to federal lands.
