Subject: Support Elimination of the Death Tax
Date: Thu, 1 Sep 2005 15:54:03 -0400 (EDT)

Dear ----,

For the last four years, President Bush and Republicans in Congress have championed a pro-growth agenda that has brought tax relief to millions of Americans. Historic legislation in 2001 and 2003 put America on the track to economic growth, and today our economic outlook is bright. There is more work to do, however, to ensure that tax-paying Americans can keep more of their own hard-earned income.

When they return from their August recess, Senators will consider a key issue: elimination of the death tax. The death tax is an unfair double taxation of income, which hurts America's small businesses and farms and threatens job growth. Unfortunately, Senate Democrats are working hard to oppose our efforts to eliminate this unfair tax.

Will you help bring tax relief to more hard-working Americans? Call Senator Dianne Feinstein at 202-224-3841 today and ask them to eliminate the death tax.

Our party's opportunity agenda means allowing families to keep more of the money they earn. The historic tax relief in the President's first term was only the beginning. Americans deserve a tax code that is simple and fair. The Senate needs to do its part by making tax relief permanent and burying the death tax forever.

Call Call Senator Dianne Feinstein at 202-224-3841 today and ask them to vote to eliminate the death tax!

Make your voice heard on this important issue. Call Senator Dianne Feinstein. Express your support for tax relief and economic opportunity.

Elimination of the death tax would be a victory for fairness and job creation. Working together, we can help eliminate the burden of the death tax once and for all.

Thank you,

Ken Mehlman,
RNC Chairman
Yes, you read that right. No, I did not doctor the date. This email went out this afternoon.

Do they deliberately seek out the most gruesome possible juxtapositional ironies? Do they think we're not clever enough to decipher their completely open program of hatred and scorn for poor and working-class Americans, so they need to send us these special clues till we get the message?

They really. should. die. And then get taxed. A lot.
