you know, tax the 2% for the next four years. As for this bizarre taxation of the dead.

But liberal Democrats and mentally dysfunctional liberals want to massively tax the death of the individual. One retard on the Hannity program couldn't get it in her freaking head what Probate Courts are for. She thinks wealthy people are some sort of "Redistribution Center of Wayward Underachievers".

Republicans have been forced into a Hobson's choice of either letting the Bush tax cuts expire for everyone or agreeing to a tax hike on the top 2 percent of income earners (not to be confused with "the rich," who have already made, inherited or married their money).

If Republicans object to the Democrats' hitting job creators with a tax hike, three things will happen: Taxes will go up for everyone; Republicans will be seen as the "party of the rich"; and the inevitable economic collapse will be blamed on Republicans.

If Democrats were merely trying to raise...
