    You previously said, "but still much higher than it was for most of the first 150 years of our country's history"

    There was no inheritance tax prior to 90 years ago, so its rate could hardly have been lower.

    Once again you are admitting that you won't stop whining as long as there are taxes.

    major fail on your part

    any rate higher than zero is higher than zero.

    and you won't stop whining until anyone you perceive to be wealthier than you is taxed to the point that they have no more discretionary income than you do

    Re: which best describes your view of the inheritance tax?

    The entire list of federally imposed taxes is long. Our government, made of of every Party composition possible, over the last 232 years, have systematically increased its power to legislate themselves the ability to rob America blind.

    They have used the publc's credit card to buy votes from the very people who must repay the debt.

    Unfortunately the debt/income ratio now demands a halt to the use of the publics credit card...and an overwhelming payment is due which the card owners can't repay.

    Somebody has to close shop! I can see huge claw marks left throughout Washington.

    As I said before, we are all aware that you want no taxes. The lowest rate in its history is not good enough for you. We've got it already, you don't have to keep crying about it.

    You have whined about the lowest tax rate in 80 years and said:

    any rate higher than zero is higher than zero.
    We've got it, you don't want any inheritance tax rate higher than zero.

    You are right in a very limited sense , I believe-there should be no death tax or tax on estates but that is far different than saying I am against all taxes.

    Its like claiming anyone who is against people owning ICBMs is in favor of a complete gun ban or that if you think partial birth abortion should be banned you want to enslave women

    same logic

    same stupidity

    That's what I said, you are not satisfied with the inheritance tax being the lowest in 80 years, you want it to be zero. Glad you could finally bring yourself to admit it!
