Time to become an activist
It seems like it's time to become a political activist. There are a bunch of issues that Congress and the Obama administration need to take seriously this year before real damage is done. The first issue that comes to mind is the death tax. In just four short months, the tax code reverts back to the old one where tax rates increase to 55 percent for estates valued in excess of $1 million. As many of you know, this tax plan can blow up the family farm or ranch. As a matter of fact, any business that is long on assets and short on cash flow will be damaged as a result of this change in the tax code. I suppose this would be another endorsement of our irresponsible Congress. Just remember, you can fix it November 2.
