Republican nominee Anthony Granata exits his car to take questions from the media

 

August 2016

I am excited to be in the great state of Ohio and I anticipate a fantastic convention. The republican party is strong, unified, and ready for victory. I will take some questions at this time, as I can imagine you all are full of them.

Mr. Granata- Julie Munoz United News

The Chair of your party and other notable members emphasized ending the estate tax, saying that it would benefit rural and working Americans. Can you explain how the position of your party would benefit rural and working Americans?

I think that's a ridiculous question and you're trying to get soundbites instead of discussing issues. I don't believe that the left are Nazis. I think that they're promoting an agenda that endangers our free market capitalist society. A lot of the things they're talking about set us up for large government overreach and take the freedom and liberty away from the American people. Instead of empowering our people and encouraging economic freedom and growth, it is the position of the democratic party that the government is more knowledgeable and better equipped to make important decisions than a middle class family outside of Pittsburgh or Columbus. If you ask them about whether they support socialism or not, they don't really want to give you a straight answer. They support what their pollsters tell them to support.

The estate tax is especially crippling to one of our biggest assets as a nation, and that's our family owned and operated farmers. There are people in rural areas who do great work and contribute a lot to our economy. These people are the legacy of, in some cases, a hundred years of family owned and operated farming businesses. When it comes time for them to inherit these assets and continue the good work, they are in many cases unable to afford the tax associated with it. The government can not be in the business of stifling growth and economic freedom. These people shouldn't have to worry about affording taxes to be able to take over their family business, especially when they contribute so much to the American economy.  W're going to do a great job of protecting these people's ability to continue the work of their fathers and grandfathers.

Just a quick point of clarification. You're saying that the majority of family owned farms are valued at over $11 million? That's the married deduction is $11 million tax free and then taxes are paid. I just don't understand how the first $11 million tax free is stiffling. Could you expand on the how?

Then why did you call them Nazis?

The point is that we don't encourage success when we start taxing people for working hard and building a large family farm. If you are in the category of the 20% of large family farm owners and inherit 1,400 acres of land. That's $5,000,000 worth of assets immediately, just on the land. I'm not going to scare people away from growth and expansion. We don't give people a reason to think big when we start demonizing their hard work. for the 80% of family farm owners who someday might be in that category, I can't look at them and tell them not to bother, because the government is going put a significant burden on your children if you become that successful.

I could be here for 12 hours going back and forth with reporters who want to get into these types of spats. The truth is that the only ones using that word are your network and that kid from Colorado. You'll get no more questions.

Senator, one last question no follow up. You voted against the ENOUGH Act that banned revenge porn. One of your colleagues said the following

"There are legal intricacies that need to be discussed and discerned regarding revenge porn: for example, whether the photographs are the property of the one who took them, or if ownership and rights were transferred to the recipient upon the gifting of the photo. Lots to discuss."

Do you agree with him and can you explain your vote?
