Letter: Reader poses question to Sen. Grassley

For years, Sen. Chuck Grassley pushed the elimination of the estate tax by falsely asserting it harmed Iowa family farms. When he could no longer, with a straight face, assert this he proposed a jaw-dropping new reason for its elimination. People should save and invest more and not spend on booze, women and movies. Since I do not spend any money on the above, please advise, Sen. Grassley, how else I can save $5.5 million — the current exemption.

I’m waiting to hear from you.
