    Too many people take advantage of the current tax system as it is now. I rocked that system using our accountant with investment income for years. Especially when I had our rental property. I constantly upgraded it with contractors, now that I was getting income and I was cashing in on depreciation in my return. All the while making that home better and getting paid for it in rent and value. It was a bonanza. I can only imagine the money the wealthy scam the govt. The fairest way to tax is the flat tax with a minimum income.

    I'm still waiting to see the Democrats running on a platform of reduced federal spending.

    Right ... from everyone. Everyone in this country needs to pay more taxes. Top to bottom. Drastic spending reductions with nothing being off-limits, and drastic short-term tax increases with loophole closures, followed by a required annual balanced budget at the federal level, for starters. Once we spend less and live with our means, taxes can come down again.

    Are we in agreement there?

    How is taxing an estate on money that has already been taxed, 2, 3 or 4 times a positive?

    So you don't feel good that the two piece of scum who plant the bombs at the marathon, and mom and dad, have received approx $100 grand in different types of benefits from the Commonwealth of Mass. Oh and we get to pay for the kids lawyers and medical bills now.
