    Then slave tax it is! It's obvious to almost anyone who the most productive are, the people actually doing the work.

    To me salary just feels more like income, while inheritance just feels like a parent sharing with his child. I would be happy to allow a parent's property to pass to his children with no assessed income tax.

    I don't think trying to tax all inheritance would be any worse for a politician's image than trying to tax none of it. Especially if it came at the same time as a tax cut.
