However rw kooks like to tell lies to the American people and claim that the death tax will rob you from your family's farm. Nothing more can be from the truth. The estate tax never robbed a small farmer from passing on his farm to his children, but rw kooks will tell you otherwise. I am not a fan of taxation, but taxing uber rich estates is one of the best places to tax. Unfortunately, the GOP think that trustafarians are some of the most productive people in the world. They advocate for perpetual wealth and dynasties, all while claiming that this is American. Perpetual wealth, especially created by the government, is hardly American. Wealth is created through hard work and ingenuity, but Republicans hate these American values. It is truly disturbing.
