Wyoming GOP Rep. Claims People So Worried About Taxes They’re Planning To Die This Year

Wyoming Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis says her constituents are so worried about reinstatement of federal estate taxes that they’re planning to stop dialysis and other life-sustaining treatments so they can die before the end of the year.

Lummis, a Republican who holds her state’s lone seat in the House, declined to name any of the people who have made the comments.

But she said many ranchers and farmers in the state would rather pass along their businesses — “their life’s work” — to their children and grandchildren than see the federal government take a large chunk.

She claims children of those making these decisions have confided in her and it’s up to them if they wish to come forward.
