Where There's A Will There's A Tax
After the vast fortunes of a recently deceased oil tycoon in Portugal Virtual were left to a small cactus plant, citizens nationwide have been asking the same question: should the inheritance tax laws be changed?
1. "Every time I see a stupid rich kid having an easy ride of life with money they did nothing to deserve, I go into a jealous rage and start punching walls," says economically disadvantaged individual Beth Jefferson. "Abolish inheritance entirely! If the government takes the inheritance then we can spend all that cash on things that make ordinary people's lives better, like education, social welfare, and attack helicopters."
2. "This is a disgusting breach of my human rights," says Larry Hendrikson, heir to an international widget empire. "Just think of all the poor families who have spent their lives scrimping and saving with the dream of passing on a modest luxury yacht to ensure the security of their children's children. All that sacrifice, all that toil, all those long nights working their fingers to the bone setting up offshore accounts - it brings a tear to my eye. Inheritance tax has got to go!"
3. "Surely we can arrange some sort of compromise here," says comfortable knitwear fan Fleur Jones. "Yes, it's true that some people exploit the system - but a lot of people rely on inheritance for their basic support! Why don't we just set a sensible ceiling on how much you can inherit? That way you get to keep the family farm, but not the five mansions and the oil refinery."
