Carly Stands with Farmers and Ranchers Against Tax Hikes

August 06, 2010

“In the midst of one of the worst economic downturns in a generation, California families simply cannot afford to pay an additional $1,600 in higher taxes next year. And California family farms and ranches – who have already suffered a one-two punch from a bad economy and restricted water flow to the Central Valley – can’t afford to be saddled with a 55 percent death tax,” said Fiorina. “Today, I join these hard-working farmers and ranchers in urging Barbara Boxer to stand against the largest tax hike in American history.”
