The comment refered to their hypocracy with it, not as a smear against those that have inheirited. My apologies if it offended you, 2Gifts.

It did not offend me. I was simply looking for clarification, and you have provided it, so now I do understand what you meant. Thanks for taking the time to give the additional info.

And now that I understand, I will say that I still disagree. Even if the taxes he proposes are passed and those who make over 200k are taxed with income taxes, when they die, their money will have already been taxed, so I still see no reason to tax it again because they died. It just feels too socialistic to me, but that's just my opinion. Others will see it differently, I am sure.
