Can anyone give me a good argument against this? I'm not an expert on economics or politics, and it seems like such a good idea I'm sure there must be something wrong with it.
So tell me, why shouldn't we have a 100% estate tax? It would make everyone work for their wealth, rather than being lazy and leeching off their families. We wouldn't have politicians who have wealth that they didn't work a day for, wielding power with no experience to make their decisions just or fair. 100% estate tax would pay our government debts, improve society in every aspect (if the money is used correctly), and reduce corruption by a great deal. Why not?
