But seriously there are plenty of wealth transfers that are not taxed. Life insurance and trusts come to mind immediately.

Yea we should just keep letting them rob us blind because we have freedom of speech.

Anyways, these women are too hot to live anywhere else.

The economic benefits of an estate tax should be obvious. Do we have an argument against it other than "It's not fair"?

Lots of things have benefits that aren't right...

Robbing a bank has benefits too...

Why is it acceptable for the government to double dip the same funds? They are manufacturing more debt in a system that survives on manufactured debt.

Liberals love to spend money buying votes to retain power. Their eyes light up with the thought so just what/who they can buy next with new revenues. "Oh, the good we could do with these funds" Just like the good they are doing now. I think we will all stand in line to get more of what they are putting out.

Why do all your posts have to include some version of "liberal?"

Sometimes it's "double dipping", but a lot of times it's just unrealized capital gains.

Besides you can angle a lot of taxes to show that they "double dip" in some way shape or form. It's hard not to when you tax most financial transfers of wealth.

Who else is entitled to Kurb's parents wealth if they deem he should receive it? Not me. Not you. No one else is, not even the gov't.

He is their heir, he should receive it if that is his parents choice. It's not a hard concept.

You're playing apples and oranges to try and make some obscure point about "libertarians" and it's not working.


btw i don't believe that people shouldn't be able to give their money to whoever they want, so long as it's taxed appropriately. you're battling a straw man. however in the absence of the estate tax, i'm fully willing to argue that i, and everyone else, has an equal claim to the wealth of the dead as whomever happened to win the genetic lottery.

it's a transfer of wealth. it gets taxed. sorry for everyone that won the genetic lottery but that's how it is. if the counter argument is "b-b-b-but the money gets taxed more than once" well uh then i guess we just shouldn't have taxes then.

I'm with Bronn on this... the issue, as Cantrell has tried to derail it to, is not the heir issue, it's the fact that the gov't is taxing monies multiple times.


you can extend this argument to literally every tax. hey did you know that, after estates are taxed, and you use your new found wealth to purchase tissues to cry into, you're going to have to pay a sales tax during that transaction! it's triple taxation! far more sinister than double taxation

I'm sorry but what transfer of wealth ISN'T taxed?


but this time it's not fair. as the child of rich parents i'm entitled to those things that i didn't work for, and it's not fair that big gubmint taxes this transfer of wealth because *feelings*
