"I would hate to see the estate tax gutted. It's a very equitable tax. It's in keeping with the idea of equality of opportunity in this country, not giving incredible head starts to certain people who were very selective about the womb from which they emerged." - Warren Buffett
I have enormous respect for wealthy people who keep their head on straight, and still insist of equity and fairness, even though the lack of equity would be greatly to their personal benefit.
