    but that wouldn't get the dems votes

If he and my aunt die, under current rules, the daughters would have to basically break up the business, fire all the workers, and sell off the pieces in order to be able to pay the tax.
    exactly right. Many of the uberrich like the death tax since it kills off the competition.

    and to prevent dem overlords buying the votes of those who think that they are entitled to the wealth of others

    I am all in favor of my income being taxed at the same effective rate as the Unionistas and paying the same amount of death tax that you will

    again, no such thing as a death tax...i know it, you know and time for you to move past it....what you are in favor of is screwing all those that make less than you, with the full burden of the upkeep of our society, while all the while claiming that you pay 'too much' in taxes, when, it has been shown repeatedly to you, and which you continue to ignore, your tax burden is at its lowest, and has been for over 50yrs...i've got news for ya, and i know this is going to come as a shock to you, but when you die....YOU REALLY CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU!!!! YOU HAVE NO USE FOR MONEY, LET ALONE MATERIAL OBJECTS WHEN YOUR DEAD!!! now take a deep breath, i didnt mean to give you such a shock, but you needed to know the truth...glad i could help you out.

    I tire of the mindset that you and yours are more entitled to other peoples wealth than those that the creator of wealth bequeaths it o

    and it is a death tax whether you lovers of that abomination want to deny that.

    ANd the rich are paying more of the tax burden now than at any time in the last 50 years because people like you are paying LESS.


    The good news is that unions are dying and the sooner they are gone the sooner we can get back to wiping the stain of welfare socialism out of this country

    So why does Obama constantly make those statements? They are clearly designed to whip up the support of the envious
