    Obama will give in..... again.
    Why would he do that this time? What would he have to prove and who would he have to impress after winning in November?

    I guess that is your way of attempting to both dodge the question and move the goal posts at the same time.

    I have no idea..... but he will surrender just like before. I sure wish he would not. But he will. The past is prologue to the future.

    Any time taxes are raised with the promise to cut spending...we only get the tax increases. The spending cuts never seem to happen.

    The Republicans would go along with that...probably including the Tea Party guys. But I really don't think the Democrats would like it.

    Oh, well.
    That's bull. It's was offered during the budget committee meetings last fall and the Repo's rejected the idea.

    Now we'll have "mandatory" budget cuts including the military - yeah, we'll see how that turns out IRL ...

    I did GOOGLE it before I asked . I could not find one instance where the death of anyone was taxed. NOT A SINGLE ONE.

    Not one American death was taxed . I cannot locate one example of it.

    You are screaming, whining and moaning about something which does not exist.

    wrong as usual-its just to show that the term estate tax is as or more inaccurate as death tax. the best name for it is "a surcharge on the wealthy"

    why do you set standards that no one else is using. no one said the act of death was taxed-everyone said that death is what causes the tax to "vest"

    Screaming, whinning and moaning? Rather dramatic IMO.

    Tomato/Tomato.

    I'll just continue to call it a Death Tax.

    Yeah -its an appeal to class envy that survives only because it isn't applied to more people. any politician who applied it to every estate would be dead within a week
