This is one of my real hot buttons. I've known several families that had to sell the family farm to developers of tick-tacky housing developments because there wasn't enough cash to keep the farm after the parents died. I hated that.
But what I hated even more is when Jack Kent Cooke died, and his son John couldn't afford to keep the Redskins football team. I've never liked danny snider and what he did to the team. I think there were other teams that had to be sold for the same reason - only the Steelers escaped the inheritance tax because Rooney died on one of the last few days the inheritance tax had a hiatus.

And if we're going to penalize families for having an inheritance, then we should also tax all of the charities that people name in their wills.

Harrumph - I did say it was one of my hot buttons.  :thud:

Your stuff isn't your; it belongs to the government, who grant you certain rights to it, during your lifetime.
