Kevin Brady, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, I am proud to yield 2 minutes to the gentlewoman from Tennessee (Mrs. Black), one of our key members of the Ways and Means Committee who has been fighting for this as a Representative from Tennessee, and as a small business owner, she knows how expensive it is for families who work and live along Main Street."
Death Tax Repeal Act Of 2015 April 16, 2015
Erik Paulsen, R-MN
"The truth is that average Americans can be negatively affected by this tax. Not only are businesses not being passed down to the next generation, but they are also being forced to lay off other employees that are currently employed. When a small business shuts its doors and then lets those employees go, it can have a very profound affect on the community."
