Idiotic LTE of the day This beauty comes from one Ronald L. Buckles of Denver, published in the Rocky Mountain News on Tuesday the 25th. He would like to see the US retain the Tax on Dying, or, umm, estate tax. Excerpt:
So why do some of our elected officials in Washington want to do away with it completely? Full repeal of the estate tax would mean much less money for the things most Americans really care about: Social Security, Medicare, prescription drugs, education, and homeland security. Is it fair for multimillionaires to get another tax break while the rest of us bear the burden? You mean people would have to bear the financial burden of their own existence? Why would they do that when rich people could just pay for everything instead?
