Why? Because someone needs to pay for the government programs and the military spending. Do you believe there should be flat tax, or do you think it's more reasonable that those who have the ability to pay should pay more?why?
it's their money to do with as they please. Leaving it for their heirs is their right. Why does the govt have ANY claim to that money. it has likely been taxes more times than you have fingers by the time it comes to the point of being inherited. taxing estates is a HUGE slap in the face to the deceased
Interestingly, prior to Regan and his supply side economics and deficit spending, the budget was balanced. Since, the national debt has skyrocketed all while the rich has been paying historically low taxes.
