I didn't understand the complaint, myself. One person with $48,000 income paid more income tax (filing single) than two people with $56,000 income (filing MFJ). How exactly is that a "death tax"? The single person has (at least) one less exemption and half the standard deduction of the MFJ couple, so more income is taxable. No surprise there.
