(Alexandria, VA) – 60 Plus Chairman and Founder Jim Martin issued the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s proposal to end the Death Tax during his August 8, 2016, speech to the Detroit Economic Club:
“Donald Trump understands the crushing burden of the Death Tax on middle-class families and small businesses, and we applaud his proposal to abolish the Death Tax. His plan would help revitalize the sluggish Obama-Hillary economy by letting lower-and-middle-income Americans preserve their families’ security for future generations, creating jobs and saving family farms and businesses.
Hillary Clinton wants two sets of rules for America. Hillary gets to short-circuit the Death Tax with an army of lawyers and accountants to protect her fortune while the rest of us have to deal with the Death Tax. Someone needs to tell Hillary that death should not be a taxable event.
Donald Trump’s proposal to abolish the Death Tax creates greater independence for American families, while Hillary Clinton wants to confiscate the fruits of our life’s work to make us more dependent on big government. That’s just wrong and it needs to change.”

In one of last media appearances before his lies were exposed, Obamacare architect still spouting deceit and falsehoods
Just weeks before Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was caught calling the American voters “stupid” and saying the law needed a “lack of transparency” in order to pass, 60 Plus Chairman Jim Martin debated Gruber on NewsmaxTV’s Midpoint program. Gruber calls the law a “success” while Martin predicts Obamacare will result in a Republican sweep at the polls in November, as Democrats abandon their Obamacare vote in droves. Just a few weeks later, Gruber is in hiding, but in this video he’s front and center in one of his last media appearances, still spinning for Obamacare with lines that have since been exposed for the deliberate lies they are.

The eyes of Washington’s power brokers, once so confident and assured now seemed lost, aware that the world they knew would never return.
The feeling inside the Capitol Rotunda could only be described as surreal. A young political reporter all the age of 27, I was standing beside former Florida U.S. Senator Claude Pepper, and U.N. Ambassador and two-time presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson. To my other side, within arms’ reach, our nation’s First Lady, veiled in mourning as her husband lay inside the flag-draped coffin before us.
