    Yes, but the question now is do the poor and middle class pay theirs? This is an important question that liberals must answer since Obama has raised taxes on the poor and middle class more than any other President in recent history. He also raised taxes on people with medical costs that exceed 7.5% of their income and people with FSAs and more than $2,500 in medical expenses each year, such as families with special needs kids. He then raised taxes on all of us by taxing our hospitals, insurance, and medical devices. This is all in addition to the tax for not buying health insurance, and in states that can't afford to set up exchanges the poor don't get credits to pay for health insurance.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    your den masters realized that if people of your level were subjected to the death tax, those dem pimps would be voted out of office. so you have nothing to worry about because your dem masters do not want to enrage the middle class with their parasitic tax policies on the estates of dead people

    do you know what is stupid? posts that pretend that there is no death tax because the poster doesn't want to call a tax they cherish by a term that is less flattering to that tax than the palatable "estate" tax that the sponsors of that abomination call it. Everyone who has an IQ above sloth or duck knows that the death tax means the tax that is used to confiscate the property of someone who has died-a tax that kicks in only after someone dies. If they give part of their estate away before they die, it is called a GIFT Tax so calling it a death tax is as or more accurate than "estate tax"

    so why don't you just stop the silliness and stop trying to divert discussions because you love the death tax and hate seeing it be called what a large number of us who are actually subjected to this abomination choose to call it

    Thats funny I seem to get my wealth from other wealthy people or corporations with plenty of cash. The poor cant afford to pay for my services. Not that they need them in the first place.

    Close the loopholes and yes they do, as they pay a higher percent.

    To call it a death tax is right wing propaganda point. Nobody called it that 20 years ago. Everybody used the term estate tax. Conservatism dictates there should be no change in terminology without a compelling reason. Also the term "death tax" is misleading. It implies there is a tax for dying, which is not true. Well over 99% of the population is not subject to it.

    Two questions: 1) Are you really going to leave an estate of over $10M? 2) Do you consider yourself a Christian? BTW, my answers are "no" and "no." And I'm proud of both answers.
