    So when challenged, its an estate tax. When you want to be over the top partisan, you embrace the neologism of the death tax. We are clear. Thank you for clarifying that.

    It's not a diversion, it's a simple request. You call it a death tax and insist people are paying it. I would like to know who these people are because I don't know any person who has ever paid a death tax.

    It's your dishonesty by using the term "death tax" and insisting people pay it.

    death tax and estate tax are interchangeable descriptions of the same thing

    only those emotionally attached to and in love with the estate tax soil think other wise

    We could also claim that anyone who has straight salary income has never paid income taxes because the employer withholds the money and sends it to the IRS not the taxpayer

    Under those terms most people could also claim they never get paid at all since few people actually receive cash from their employer anymore.

    If you cannot see then I cannot help you

    if you have your bank account increased by your employer that is exactly the same thing as he giving you a wad of money

    No. They. Are. Not.

    There is no tax upon death.

    Why do you insist on making low level personal slurs against those who simply disagree with you on a policy issue? To say something like your second line about emotional attachment and being in love is the antitheses of serious debate. Why do you engage in that when you claim to be an Ivy League educated attorney? It is perhaps the biggest mystery on this board.
