    why should only the rich be hit with this tax? when they already pay so much more federal taxes than others
    Do you know that 100% of professional bakers call a certain dessert a BOSTON CREAM PIE when it is actually a cake and not a pie?

    The name put on something DOES NOT DEFINE what it is. It is merely a name.

    55%!?!?!?!?!?!? Where are you getting such an absurd figure from?

    that means nothing

    fairness is not based on how many people are treated badly

    the rich should not be subjected to this surcharge just to make the clowns who think the government does not have enough money already feel better

    the death tax was designed as social engineering before there was massive federal income taxes

    its original purpose-albeit one that has no proper basis in the constitution-doesn't even exist anymore but pandering to the envious has always been a vote getter for the dem party

    1. What is your prediction on "If the House passes it"?

    2. Since 'the Senate may need to re-pass it to avoid any constitutional questions' you concur that the Senate vote this week was posturing or other?
    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!

    everyone on this board knows what death tax means-you are about the only one who writes tantrum posts when that term is used

    tell us what causes this emotional need to defend that tax and what causes such umbrage when I call it a term you find unflattering?

    But you have never proved that anyone is being treated badly.

    It seems the only one who religiously uses the neologism ordered by Luntz and Faris is you Turtle.

    It is not that I find your use of the silly term UNFLATTERING. I find it an outright LIE.

    Lots of very very rich people disagree. Winston Churchill disagreed and he was no raving liberal or socialist. Andrew Carnegie disagreed. Lady Astor disagreed. Warren Buffet disagrees. Bill Gates disagrees.

    That is either the most absurd thing you have ever said or falling down on the floor hysterical that you would use a radio advertisement as verifiable evidence.
