    how does one thing in your post change the fact that we have a system which hits the wages of people far harder than capital gains income or inheritance income?

    How does anything in your post change the fact that on $800,000.00 - a wage earner pays $280,000.00 in federal tax while a capital gains earner pays $120,000.00 in federal tax and someone who inherits the same sum for a different person pays nothing on that same amount?

    All the rest is lipstick on a pig.

    The idea of those discriminatory preferences being extended to you and the wealthy destroy any concept of FAIR SHARE.
    your concept of fair share is based on

    1) the from each according to their ability mantra

    2) an apples to oranges comparison


    3) supporting anything that makes other people pay more money to your beloved behemoth government

    well... for one example... you will note that in my post I point out that - according to the CBO - in fact we hit the wealthy and capital gains harder than wages .



    did you even read the thing?

    actually my main reason is to eliminate the ability of people like you to pander to the masses by jacking up my taxes

    and I pay far too much taxes based on an objective analysis of

    1) what others pay

    2) what others use in federal services

    3) and its disgusting that the people who pay the most taxes in their lifetime are the only ones taxed upon their deaths

    Using the power of government to take other people's stuff and give it to others is the epitome of selfishness and greed. Before you go all, "I'm haymarket and I'm righteously indignant" on us, please try to remember who is the one advocating the use of government force to take what belongs to others. Do you really expect your intended victims to smile and thank you? Seriously?
    the advocates for looting the wealth of others always pretend its in the interest of "the greater good"

    There is no Berlin Wall holding you here. The fact that you continue to live in a nation you loath with every fiber of your being is quite telling.

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

    I am relieved to see that the majority of pollers, like myself, clicked option #1__To those of you who clicked otherwise, I ask 'do you really believe government has proven itself to be an efficient and provident administrator of your tax dollars'?

    And have you forgotten that these assets have already been taxed by an insatiable government that will never be content until it has found a way to tax 100% of everything from everyone and ration back to us what it determines our needs to be?
