To those Republicans in lower income brackets who complain of high taxes...

Complain to the officials [i]you[/i] elected.
Absolutely. But someone in a lower income bracket who’d still be a Republican is pretty foolish.

@BlueGreenGrey I posted that second one back when Trump was running in 2016. 😆

They also all cheered Trump when he said he wanted to cancel the death tax, it's as if they don't realize it does not apply to them, but it does to Trump and buddies.

@CorvusBlackthorne Oregon and Washington both have an estate tax (it could also be referred to as the inheritance tax), that applies to property transfer when an estate is settled.

There is a Federal Estate tax, also known as the death tax. The exemption was $5.4 M, but Trump increased it to $11.5+ M per individual and twice per household.

The dimwit Trumpists, though it applied to them, and that includes the SW'ers. Trump told them they will be paying 50% to the government when they die. He did not mention that it was for anything about $11.8M net estate for individuals, and that's a sliding scale. You're at 50% when your net estate is in the 100s of Ms.
@Northwest I see. I was under the impression it applied to everyone.

No. Unless your net estate is more than about $12M, you're good. If your estate is more than $12M, then it's likely you've established trust funds for all the family/friends you care about, and you set aside $s for the organizations you care about, and then after that, if you still have more than $12M in your estate, I think heavily taxing it is fair. One of the principles the USA was built in, is that we don't have kings.

@nedkelly It's as if you don't understand oil is a global commodity.

@nedkelly Market manipulation. Futures markets. Commodity prices. Kneejerk to blame the government. Notice gas prices going down?
