Not Rich Enough

When you are running for the President of the United States of America, I’m pretty sure something you really don’t want to hit the news is a story of this kind:

“Tony said, ‘I’m sorry, you aren’t worth a million dollars and he is campaigning on the Death Tax right now.’ then he said they weren’t going to be able to come,”

The speaker is one Deb Von Sprecken, and she and her husband own a farm out in Iowa. They were initally approached by the Giuliani campaign in the hopes that the Von Spreckens could host an event at their family farm.

They agreed, went through security checks, and went through a lot of work to make sure the place was ready and that people were going to come.

Now, the Tony in question is one Tony Delgado from the Giuliani Des Moines campaign offices. As it turns out, camp Rudy was looking for a place they could use as an example in a “Death Tax” campaign event, but as it would seem, the Von Spreckens really aren’t rich enough to enjoy the benefits of repealing the “Death Tax” and so the event was canceled.

Which allows me to close with two pretty simple points. A) It’s kinda hard to fight the image that Republicans are only there to help the rich when stuff like this hits the surface and B) Wouldn’t this kinda make you think all the propaganda the GOP likes to push around about the Death Tax seem kinda false? The Von Spreckens are just the kinda family that gets targeted when they go on their crucade against the Death Tax, but they don’t stand up as an example of families who would benefit from the Death Tax finally being put to rest?
