Middle Class and below shouldn't even pay taxes. Print the fucking money.

If the government were to declare seizure of assets over $10m on death, those assets would be spread to other owners before death. The government would only receive the money of complete imbeciles, and the assets/wealth would at the very least go somewhere other than the owners’ children…
Somewhere?
Gee. I wonder where.

You don't think it'd go into the pockets of ... government bureaucrats do you? Thereby incentivizing them to pursue such policies further ... since self interested humans are inclined to repeat behaviors that reward them? Fast forward until the only people consistently passing more than $10 million to their heirs are exclusively government bureaucrats. And now ... where before you had to tolerate the indignity of someone wealthier than you handing money to their heirs - now you have a system where the corrupt people ruling you and running a military and police force *are* the rich people.

Derp.
You short sighted, one-step-thinkng-motherfuckers.

I guess the whole of human history isn't a sufficient dataset for you to predict where these short-sighted ideas would take us.
Way to miss the point…

No, the old rich and soon-to-die would no doubt transfer their excess assets to whatever else they chose. Perhaps charity or friends - who cares?

Or their kids even.
Or leave it in their will to a tax-exempt charity run by their kids.

Oh shit, better come up with even more wealth-confiscation laws to address the simple workarounds - for liberty, of course.
We'll all be much freer when the government has even more control over an individual's wealth I'm told.

Dude, you obviously have no problem with an aristocracy. Okay, we get it. America will soon turn into one if the Commies don’t win.

I never got consumption taxes? We WANT people to consume. That’s where jobs come from.

Remove income tax add consumption tax. Leave the taxes at a state level. Let corporation purchases fund the federal.

Switch to a statist tax. Let the people who actually believe government is in the business of solving problems pay whatever tax they wish to fund the government they so heartily crave.

Maybe once they're spending their own money, instead of forcing others to sacrifice, they'll finally see the light.
