Death Taxes Are Immoral; Even Worse, They Don’t Work

“‘I have no respect for the passion of equality,’ Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., one of America’s great jurists, once declared, ‘which seems to me merely idealizing envy.’ But envy, and its sister vice, greed, are very much back in fashion today when it comes to the progressive Left. Just listen to President Joe Biden, who wants $2 trillion of new taxes, mostly paid by millionaires …. Biden said billionaires ‘aren’t paying their fair share’ and shouldn’t be ‘paying a lower tax rate than a firefighter.’ That’s a ridiculous claim. The richest 1% of Americans pay 42% of the income taxes in America. That’s near an all-time record high.” (03/14/23)
