A fair share is when wealth and opportunity is distributed evenly among the people. This needs to happen, no matter what the consequences.

So, you want a 100% estate tax then? That's the only way opportunity could possibly be distributed evenly.

One person works and makes x dollars.  Another doesnt' work and makes x dollars.  That's a "fair share"?  Distributed by whom?  What consequences do you see?

I can only guess your post is baiting because you can't be serious.

I would call it joking rather than baiting, but yes, I am not serious.

One couple both work 40 hours a week and between them earn about 150k a year they are in the 28% bracket
Another couple lends the .gov money via municipal bonds and also earns 150k they are in the 0 % bracket.
That's a 'fair share?'

How about a 100% estate tax on everything over 100 million dollars and minimal if any tax on amounts below that?

My apologies. The problem was, your sarcasm was indistinguishable from the usual libertarian/Objectivist rhetoric.

You're leaving context out  of course.  One is risking nothing and expending effort for earnings.  The other is risking capital on money they've already earned - using an opportunity that is avialable to both.  Income tax and capital gains tax are two different things.  But then, you already knew that.

You'd be amazed under that system how many estates end up being worth $99,999,999.99

Why are you assuming couple B earned their money?
7/31/2011 9:39 AM
Could you please give us your definition of "earned their money"? From your tone, I believe that it should be applied to everyone worldwide as law.
