    Are you really this stupid or is this just for entertainment purposes?

    I'm guessing since I have wishes like, I don't know, giving that money in FULL to my children, family, and friends I should just go **** myself since now for whatever reason the government has some sort of ownership to everything regardless. Do you actually buy property in this country or not?

    the death tax is motivated by several disturbing philosophies

    the first is pure envy-the "my parents weren't thrifty and his were" nonsense

    the second is to appeal to those who are envious-ie rich democrats

    the third comes from the uber wealthy. They understand that high estate taxes prevent the almost wealthy from getting to the top. They also understand that death taxes cause many valuable pieces of real estate and artwork to come up for sale thus allowing these uber wealthy a chance to acquire such priceless items

    the final comes from those whose well being is based on this tax continuing. some charities and more often estate attorneys, insurance brokers and others who have a vested interest in that abomination continuing

    what the death tax is is a surcharge on those who already pay too much of the taxes

    Absolutely for higher taxes.

    EVERY adult not currently paying taxes should be taxed their fair share, which should be determined by the amount of tax dollars they've recieved in the last year.

    We must end "Spending in the Tax Code" by ending the Earned Income Tax Credit. Nor should ANYONE EVER get a refund larger than the taxes paid.

    Period.

    Then, once the people benefitting most from money stolen from taxpayers are forced to pay their fair share, lets see if their opinion on unlimited government spending changes.

    I think the figure Kali was talking about had to do with the tax percentiles, i.e., while it appears as though we have a progressive tax system, the loopholes for the wealthy enable them to pay a lower percentiles, not sure if that is what Kali meant or not.

    I do know these tax loopholes exist, as I have worked for a companies whose employees and the companies themselves, exploited them.
