    but still much higher than it was for most of the first 150 years of our country's history

    and why do people who don't face a death tax spend so much time whining that the rates on others are too low?

    Why do people ask the same rhetorical question for a hundred days in a row and get a clear answer in return continue to ask the same question? Is it for the benefit of actual debate or to make themselves feel good about their own self imposed belief system revolving around their own self interest above the nation?

    Here is the answer and it has not changed: American citizens have a right - some may even say a civic obligation as citizens - to voice their opinion about matters of national policy which effect and impact a nation of 311 million people. And that is regardless of it it directly helps or hurts them.

    This answer and the truth behind it will not change tomorrow.

    This answer and the truth behind it will not change next week.

    This answer and the truth behind it will not change next month.

    This answer and the truth behind it will not change next year.

    You really don't know what historical fact has to do with reality? No wonder your notions are so wacky!

    No one convinced voters to go along with "getting rid of discrimination against gays in the army" because it "improves the lives of humanity with a new idea, which further creates jobs for those who desire to improve their own."

    We know you don't believe in taxes. We got it.

    And again, for a time beyond calculation or counting, you play the all purpose ENVY CARD. When all reason is found absent, when the facts are simply not there to support you, when analysis is as rare as frigid day in the August of Miami, you again play the ENVY CARD. This sites version of the snooty high school girl who whines "you just hate me because I'm beautiful". Its a self given compliment that reeks of elitism as well as a denial of the obvious.

    The use of such a weak adolescent comeback speaks volumes about the user and does not one thing to negate the truth of the statement which propelled it. The fact is a simple one and cannot be denied : every American citizen has a right - perhaps even a civic duty - to be informed and speak out on vital issues of national policy to properly play their role in a democratic republic. And that includes a national tax policy. And that includes estate or inheritance taxes.

    another lie-I merely believe in fair taxation not a system that is designed to buy the votes of the many and encourage them to demand more spending that only a small group is tasked to pay for

    that you spend so much time trying to convince yourself and a few others that I am wrong really proves I have hit the mark solidly
