    There is 8.5% of the population of America ready and willing to help the people that pay taxes rich and middle class and working poor by paying taxes all they ask in return is a job with a fair wage.

    It's not they're begging for bailout money or free grants or bitching and whineing about how much taxes they would have to pay, just JOBS

    Didn't know it was to one group and not the other group?

    Just how many of these certain groups do we have , how are they rated , and who rates them.

    That is so intellectually dishonest that it reeks of outright fraud.
    Oh there might be someone with a salary of 20 Million who might be. but they aren't the ones complaining about the dividend tax rate. It tends to be people who are not in danger of ever paying an effective federal income tax rate of 15% let alone 25% (which is about what most of us in the top one percent pay) You don't hear me whining that I pay a higher effective rate than Romney (because I have a higher proportion of my income in salary-which is taxed at 35%-than MR). Its people like you who do it and the rich dems who pander to people who are upset (for no valid reason) that the rich aren't paying AS MUCH a PERCENTAGE as they think the rich should.

    Truth hurts and since the 3-4 people who spend the most time advocating the death tax aren't in any danger of paying it envy or spite has to be the most logical reason

    Totally non responsive and worthless as a comment involving my claim that it is the rich who are taxed unfairly. You ranted that the Revolution was started over unfair taxes but you imply that its the poor and middle class being treated unfairly by the tax code which is completely specious given that this thread is about the death tax and it is the rich-who are slapped with this idiotic surcharge -who are treated unfairly

    and people whine when I claim spite and envy motivates many of the posts from the extreme left.
