Tax the dead til they squeak

Andrew Bartlett has an excellent post on inheritance tax, and the fact that there is no sane argument in favour of its abolition (beyond the general libertarian argument that taxes should be lower – in which case there is still no sane argument that favours the abolition of inheritance tax in preference to income tax cuts that achieve the same total reduction in the tax burden).

It’s amusing to watch a bunch of clearly-not-sane people try and refute this proposition in his comments. You may not be surprised to learn that they fail…
