Conservative opposition to increasing the estate tax is likely to be intense, as Republicans have characterized the provision as a "death tax" that unfairly punishes Americans, including farmers, for wealth accrued over the work of a lifetime.




Plenty of ways to circumvent inheritance taxes, commonly referred to as the death tax.

Only those without any funds would believe that Sanders himself isnt quite aware of such and just spouting nonsense to the poverty pimps of the left

Not many farmers are leaving over 10 million to their children, try again :)

Don't worry though, these proposals are just the start.

It was fully expected the GOP would freak out over this. Now we are seeing who they truly represent, the elites. They can no longer lie and say they are a party of the working class.

How Much Money Do Farmers Make on Average Annually?



https://work.chron.com/much-money-farmers-make-average-annually-3185.html

Estate tax affecting farmers my ass LOL. Estate tax doesn't kick in until after $10M



Believe me Stonefish, this is a conversation the left wants to have :)



If Republicans and Conservatives truly believed in a Meritocracy where you sink or swim based on hard work, then it should be non-controversial to disallow the children of the elite rich getting such a head start on the rest of the citizenry.

45% tax on estate value of $3.5 - 10M (so he would decrease the amount that triggers the estate tax in the first place)

50% on estates from 10M to 50M

55% on estates over 50M

77% on estates over 1B

I'm liking this so far!

Combine this with Warren's tax plan on total wealth, AOC's 70% top marginal income tax rate, and all we need is a capital gains increase!

Then bring down the hammer and ban any business that relocates to avoid taxes from accessing America's consumer markets. BOOM. Checkmate elites.

That would be great if you hadn't turned the off topic section into the American politics section.

Maybe keep it to 2 threads a week instead of a million a day, is there any reason the op couldn't have been posted in one of the other thousand American politics threads instead of making another?

I'll take your suggestions into consideration, thanks! If you feel the ratio of threads is off, feel free to start more Off Topic threads that don't have anything to do with politics.
