The Senate rejected efforts Thursday to repeal the estate tax, but supporters promised to try again. On Monday, we told you that NETWORK, the Catholic social justice lobby, opposed repeal of the tax because
. . . we believe tax and spending decisions are fundamental statements of what we value as a nation. Elimination of, or reductions to the estate tax will benefit a small percentage of wealthy people while damaging human services which are needed by many Americans.

Thanks to those of you who took the time to call your senators and asked them to oppose this proposal.
