Eliminate the inheritance tax?

15% corporate tax that buiz owners can claim too?

Then he (very vaguely) wants to close loopholes, but what would they need them for when they already pay a lower rate than their employees?

I like some aspects of the plan and think other parts of it need work. The inheritance tax, for instance, is pretty ridiculous and doesn't make much sense anyway.

You mean it's ridiculous that he wants to eliminate it right?

Right!?

No, as in the inheritance tax never made much sense to begin with. Getting rid of it is something only people with nothing to pass on to their kids would whine about.

The wealthy are already richer than they've been since the start of this country

Over half of Capital is inherited and about 60-70% is owned by 1% of the population

How much is enough for them? Where is this flood of good paying work we were promised?

How many yachts do they need to own?

Please take the alternate position so I can let out my anger thank you

All must go to gulag

He acts like "why would you be mad about this"

Who do you think is going to pick up the tab that the Paris Hiltons would get out of

People who have to goddamn work for a living

Then we need a better tax code in general so that the wealthy will use what they have. If you try to pass on even just 1 million dollars you pay $345,800 of that. And there's no good reason for that when someone in that family is already paying heavy taxes year after year at that level.

At the end of the day, we need a country where people of all income levels should want to live and feel that its fair. If you want to reduce the disparity, then support a smarter tax code that provides incentives for all types of income brackets.

...or just continue to pray one day for Karl Marx to come down in a heavenly chariot and destroy the capitalist swine. :D

Ant ******* Trump's and the GOP's dicks once again.

I seriously despise people with your mindset.

"I'm making money. I have a business. Make it all about me. **** everyone else."

Well I despise close-minded fools like you just as much, so how about that?

...nah just kidding. :P

You must have missed the part where I called for a smarter tax code for all income brackets. But I don't expect anything resembling reading comprehension from you or elph, so here's a nice *shrug*.
