Log Cabin Republicans Demands Full Repeal of Death Tax

Washington, D.C. — Log Cabin Republicans has sent a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan praising him for bringing forward H.R. 1105, the Death Tax Repeal Act of 2015, for committee markup Wednesday, March 25 and encouraging its full and swift passage in the House of Representatives.

In the letter, which can be read at this link, Log Cabin Republicans National Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo states, “The Supreme Court’s historic 2013 opinion in United States v. Windsor, which ruled that the federal government treat married same-sex couples in the same manner as their straight counterparts, was a case whose very predication was based on the inequalities inherent in the Death Tax. Regardless of sexual orientation, the Death Tax highlights the flaws in the tax code in which the federal government chooses winners and losers, and leaves families — many of whom merely seek to transfer or retain property rather than money — levied with disproportionate penalties in their moment of greatest vulnerability.”

The letter is also being sent to every member of the United States House of Representatives.

Log Cabin Republicans is the nation’s largest Republican organization representing LGBT conservatives and allies. The more than 30-year old organization has state and local chapters nationwide, a full-time office in Washington, D.C., a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
