The high hopes of the Missouri Farm Bureau went down the drain when President Clinton vetoed the estate tax. Farm Bureau lobbyist Dan Cassidy says the fact only 2% of Americans pay the penalty is meaningless, since so many people pay thousands to avoid the tax. And he disputes President Clinton’s claim that the tax is too drastic. The $105 billion dollar measure would repeal the tax over 10 years. It passed 59 to 39 back in July, with less than the two-thirds margin needed to veto.
