    No, it's not.

    Not every argument about taxes or the wealthy should devolve into a discussion about class warfare and envy.

    Inheritance tax is grave robbery. It's an abomination.

    so you are saying that those who support or created the death tax were all free of envy?

    you can prove that and I will stop saying that envy plays a major roll in the support of the death tax

    Can you prove that they were/are envious? I cannot prove or disprove someone else's motives. Nevertheless, you are making assumptions.

    The point is....

    The insidious class envy that has been cultivated in this country by liberal Democrats for their own power is sickening. The "poor man" SHOULD stand up for the rich man, because the rich man is the one risking the capital to provide him a job, instead of wanting to tear him down.
