    Does that mean Obama is going to eliminate the Death Tax?

    I think you mean the estate tax, and I hope not. Republicans renamed it the death tax to trick low income individuals to care about it when it really just affects upper income individuals.

    Why should these people pay taxes on money that has been taxed just because a family member died?

    Democrats named it estate tax to trick people into thinking that they are doing something other than taxing people after they die.

    Whether or not it affects only the upper class is irrelevant.

    It is the same old class warfare played by the democrats. You are not entitled to the money you and your family worked hard to get and somehow the Government deserves a cut of it even though taxes have been paid on the money.

    How many times should a person have to pay taxes on the same dollar earned?

    It's not a trick. I die and the government tries to take as much of the money I legally earned (and paid taxes on multiple times already) to support my wife and children just to turn around and blow it on some stupid socialized program a lowlife liberal put together to buy more votes. No thanks. That is why I have an irrevocable trust and the greedy liberal pigs in congress won't be getting anything from me.

    Well if you inherit something from a deceased individual you would only be taxed once.

    People like Rat will never understand this because they have nothing to leave their loved ones and are jealous of those who do.

    Actually, that is true...though it still does not make it right for obvious reasons.

    Yes a transfer from the people and family who earned it to the Government. That money has been earned and taxed because someone dies should not give the Government the right to come in and get another cut of that money. You liberals and your wealth redistribution really take the cake. Wanting what you have not earned

    Their entire survival is based on stealing money that they were incapable of earning on their own. No better than a common thief. They may be worse because they try and hide who they are. At least when you are mugged, the mugger is up front about his intentions.

    One thing Rat is right about this tax will not affect me because my family and I are not wealthy. This does not change the principals of what the Government is doing and it is wrong no matter how you slice it.

    I appreciate you standing on principle despite the law not effecting you right now. I am by no means wealthy, but do plan on being so eventually. Being an owner of a very small yet growing business I get to see the other side of taxes that most never even realize exist. The government has enough money to meet it's obligations under the Constitution. They just need to learn how to use it more effectively.

    In this country if you are willing to take the risk then you deserve the rewards. I'm not a big risk taker that is my choice but I see no reason to punish those who are. I expect people to pay their fair share and when found cheating I think the courts should throw the book at them but those who play by the rules and are willing to go out on a limb should reap the rewards that is what this country was founded on. Today we demonize those risk takers and want to take from them because some do not feel they need that much.

    Rat and the rest of the liberals run from the truth all the time. It is a DEATH TAX because only DEATH starts it.
