    Of a self-starter and doesn't worry about another 3% of taxes.  Where I see more conflicts is over estate taxes, which is what is part of what is at stake.

      Warren Buffet has come up with an excellent dodge to pay less estate taxes.

      Any way they can screw us the can and will.

        We fought a couple of wars to get away from a hereditary aristocracy.

        The Estate Tax is a seriously effective way to move our country forward.

        •  Because the rotten Founding fathers made (0+ / 0-)

          the revolution about taxes as well as freedom we are now stuck with rich people not wanting to pay taxes because the founding fathers didn't want to.

          People in this country are dumb enough to think that they are going to pay estate taxes are dumb enough to vote TGOP. We have lost the tax argument every since rotten ronnie and evil milton sold this crap like a Ford Pinto. Dangerous at any speed.

          We are losing the class war because not enough people get it. As far as I'm concerned the rich need to pay more taxes because the have more to lose and should be grateful for what they have instead of a bunch of rotten whiny crybabies.

          It also doesn't help that the Senate is a club of mostly 100 rich people. They are not on our side.

          Where are these jobs with the tax cuts for the rich and no estate taxes?? Again, frack the rich who aren't entertainers or actually work for a living, that includes Warren Buffet.

        avoid estate taxes other than giving away his money to charities and foundations that help the poor in Africa.  His children will not inherit anything than a daughter who will continue to run a foundation.  Is that tax dodging to you?
