Eliminating the estate tax “The death tax disproportionately hurts states like Missouri, which relies heavily on agriculture revenue. This tax is often a crushing blow to family business owners and farmers who are trying to plan for the future, which is why I support permanently eliminating it altogether.”

---Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO)
