Should Average Americans Pay Higher Death Tax than Billionaire "Man of the People", Hugo Chavez?

Despite the weeping and wailing of the Hollywood Left, the world has at least the potential to become a better place with the passing of the dictator Hugo Chavez. Given the fact that even a toilet seat in Venezuela was considered a "luxury item" for taxation purposes by the government, and that the estate of the recently departed 'Man of the People' Hugo Chavez has been estimated at around $2 Billion (with a "B"), perhaps now is the time to get American liberals on board with some tax reform of our own?

Inheritance tax in Venezuela is around 25%
. If you died tomorrow, the government's take from you would be about twice that, as a percentage. Ask your liberal friends if they believe that your passing should be taxed at twice the rate as a billionaire dictator? (Well, to be fair, you probably do have quite a number of those luxury toilet seats, now, don't you?)

  1. The death tax is the dumbest thing ever. I know there are a lot of dumb taxes but WTF!

    1. Everything you earned during your lifetime was subject to one or more taxes. For the government to then come and appropriate 50% more from your heirs, is beyond rapacious.
