<<< Oh, and don't get me started on the flat tax proposed by Forbes. What they don't tell you is that Forbes would basically pay NO tax under that system.>>>

Hey, you weren't supposed to figure that out. But you're basically correct. Forbes exempts interest, dividends, and capital gains from all tax. Well, guess where someone who inherited billions gets most of his income. Nice of him to let the poor guys who work for wages pay his share.
