    Is this the standard play of the extreme left again-demanding proof of the obvious in an effort to divert

    if everything is so obvious turtle, then providing proof should be easy for you...you constantly scream about dems 'buying votes' with tax dollars, well, PROVE IT!! For someone who is supposedly a lawyer, you do a piss poor job of backing up your argument...just sayin'

    I agree, an inheritance should be tax-free just like income.

    That is a gross oversimplification of a very complex issue.

    Oh I am sure that with the right wing floating all sorts of repressive measures the Democrats would have no trouble getting votes against the enemy at the gates.

    The right wing does a very good job on their own of scaring the hell out of average people and motivating them to vote without any promises of goodies or incentives dangled in front of them. We know that because no matter how many times you allege such things, you never have provided any evidence of it.

    Please do give us some examples of just how this works and the names of the advocates and how they benefit for the estate tax.

    Pompous pontifications by the gross it would seem is the speciality of the far right. They certainly know what they believe. The big problem they have is they just cannot prove it to anybody else not hopped up on their ideological kool-aid.
