If you became rich from working, then it's double taxing your labor.If no one is allowed to stay rich from working, then no one will work hard to become rich, & there won't be any tax money.Most people need incentive.
> no one will work hard to become richI dunno about that... it's still a lot nicer to be rich, even if you still have to work to keep it.
The death tax is especially insidious. Lots of rich folks will forego pleasures so that they can leave nice estates to their descendants.Then along comes the government and essentially confiscates 55% of amounts beyond the limit.What is fair and right doesn't seem to matter - the pols only care about who votes and who doesn't vote. And the dead just don't vote (unless it's Chicago of course).
> the dead just don't vote Specious logic on your part, yet again.Their descendants certainly vote, and they certainly make campaign contributions.
And the dead just don't vote (unless it's Chicago of course).hey,that's where the prez went on his b-day today,LOL.
