A January 6, 2010 Wall Street Journal article, titled Small Business Group Vows Major Campaign to End Estate Tax (by John D. McKinnon 1/6/10), profiled the American Family Business Institute -- "a small-business trade group that has long opposed the estate tax."
Here are three takeaways from this article:
- "AFBI is pitching permanent repeal as a way to create jobs"
- "In the past, the group has targeted Senate races with TV campaigns, but this time it plans to get involved in House races as well."
- For 2010, [Dick Patten, president of the American Family Business Institute] says the group is making current Majority Leader Harry Reid “our new public enemy No. 1.”
