Taxpayer Association of Oregon News

On Thursday the House voted to permanently extend the death tax at is 45% rate. Oddly, the estate tax would have dissapeared in 2010 without Congressional approval and then wildy reversed itself back to pre-Bush high rates in 2011. In essence, the House voted to avoid losing any more revenue and never allowing America to see a day without the dreaded death tax. Here is how Oregon’s congressional delegation voted.

Blumenauer – Yes
DeFazio – Yes
Wu – Yes
Schrader Yes
Walden – No
