Don't let the Republicans inject the word death into this argument. Noone's taxing death.
Unfortunately with the Republicans deliberate defunding of government so they can cut programs for the poor, middle class, unemployed, disabled, etc. they tax the poor, the middle class with lack of government services and increased "user fees" and increased premiums, copays, and deductibles for health insurance programs.
I view the Republican party, the party of Hoover.
Herbert Hoover economics.
J. Edgar Hoover assault on civil liberties.
