In other words, I am in support of nationalized health care and also for the abolition of the death tax. Any ideas on what we could do?
Actually it is dubbed the death tax – look it up
Also, you’re off on your percentages of taxes paid on what amount. Neither of you answered my question at all.
I think the death tax should be indexed so that it doesn’t impact anyone with less than a certain amount. Of course, that is the case now but the amount should probably something like $5 million to start and then be indexed each year.
National health care should focus on preventive strategies. Our system currently rewards people who abuse themselves with drugs, alcohol, and obesity. We should impose harsh taxes on fast foods much like government likes to tax cigarettes, booze, and strip joints. Anything unhealthy should be discouraged. Discounts on insurance should be giving to health buffs who exercise every other day and who stay within a certain calory limit. Government should encourage and reward good health practices with health credits on the Income Tax much like the earned income credit.
