    your attempts to divert things are silly. This board is littered with rants about the rich. many of them coming from the same 4-6 posters

    Just who is it that you accuse of failure?

    And how do you obtain this personal information about other posters?

    No. There are other citizens who have an interest in developing a just national tax policy. The rest is your demonization of people who take a different position that you being able to satisfy your own personal greed.

    the only rich people who whine about increasing the estate tax are either the uber wealthy or those who gain more by having dems win.

    Sadly such noble (LOL) reasons are not what motivates most of the tax the rich crowd on this board. most of their posts are infected by obvious spite towards the rich

    Oh Bull ****. If people were truly concerned about a "just" tax policy they would argue for no estate taxes, single taxation, and either a flat or consumption tax and tailor spending accordingly. The fact is that the wealthy are taxed more for no other reason than they have more. If you substituted the reasons for a different tax rate or took from an estate because of the color of skin, religion, or other factors you would be in violation of the equal protections clause of the fourteenth, so substitute rich for any other reason and you would be guilty of bias, the fact is that taxing someone based on an arbitrary amount of wealth you consider "enough" is in fact unjust.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
