I already explained why the estate tax doesn't work (since it sucks up so much money at certain brackets that you might as well not have an estate in the U.S. at all), which is why you need to implement different measures (like a tax that redistributes some % of income from those at income brackets at & above the 3-5 million mark with additional criteria considered). There are no upsides for the way things currently stand other than appealing to some people's sense of envy.

Kind of sad that somebody can't have a reasonable discussion in here without being character assassinated.

This is incredibly insulting actually

The rest of it is just factually incorrect

Again as the taxes stand now (estate tax and all) the rich are richer than ever before

See? I hit the nail on the head. It's all about hating the rich instead of thinking how we could actually use them as assets for people who could use those resources. Or for society. Reactive anger vs proactive thinking. Gee, I wonder which category elph and Chula fall into?

Depends on which bracket of the rich you are referring to. I already agreed with you about people in the top .01%. I'm talking about a broader spectrum here.

I don't want to ban you.
I want you to think of your health, relax and most of all stop insulting people who disagree with you.
Would you be kind enough to follow that advice?

You're only seeing the discussion from your convenient point of view - which benefits only you and those who share your ME, ME, ME mentality.

Grindy, I'm done. Thanks for the time out. Just kind of a passionate topic based on what's been going down the past few years.
