I could swear someone just told me recently that there's little thing called the Medicaid Recovery....Medicaid will go after gifts even someone too poor to have health insurance gave to someone up to 5 years prior...
and here's a little something

However, state estate taxes, which kick in for estates valued at only $1 million or less in several states, could take a big bite out of your legacy. Your home and retirement accounts will be counted when your estate is valued for tax purposes, and proceeds from your life insurance could be counted, too, depending on how the policy is owned and who gets the money.

The Medicaid thing does happen, the program has to recover money somehow because everyone is scared to raise taxes to cover it. Don't like it? Then start taxing the populace responsibly.

With state estate taxes, I was referring to federal. State taxes could be that low, but it will vary by state. Sounds like a states rights issue to me. Maybe take it up with your legislature and governor because it's not the feds that are forcing it. But certain levels of revenue are required so removing that tax probably means increasing it elsewhere, unless your state is full of the no tax pledge people. Then they just hide the revenue generation outside of your tax bill.

I don't know what is wrong with my kids then. My daughter is a CNA in Idaho, five years experience, takes classes. She makes $10 per hour with no benefits. All the like jobs are the same way. If we did not help her she could not pay all her bills. Guess we will have to get her a retirement plan also.

Here's just for you and all the screechers against Sanders' policies:

Nordic model [of economy]

"The Nordic Model - Embracing globalization and sharing risks" characterizes the system as follows:[15]

An elaborate social safety net in addition to public services such as free education and universal healthcare.[15]

Strong property rights,

contract enforcement,

and overall ease of doing business.

Public pension plans.[15]

Low barriers to free trade.[17] This is combined with collective risk sharing (social programs, labour market institutions) which has provided a form of protection against the risks associated with economic openness.[15]

Little product market regulation. Nordic countries rank very high in product market freedom according to OECD rankings.[15]

Low levels of corruption.[15] In Transparency International's 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index all five Nordic countries were ranked among the 12 least corrupt of 176 evaluated countries, and Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway all ranked within top 5.[18]

High percentage of workers belonging to a labour union.[20]

A partnership between employers, trade unions and the government, whereby these social partners negotiate the terms to regulating the workplace among themselves, rather than the terms being imposed by law.[21]

Just a taste. Just a tiny taste.....

While there are differences among different Nordic countries, they all share a broad commitment to social cohesion, a universal nature of welfare provision

in order to safeguard individualism

by providing protection for vulnerable individuals and groups in society, and maximizing public participation in social decision-making.

It is characterized by flexibility and openness to innovation in the provision of welfare. The Nordic welfare systems are mainly funded through taxation.[26]

Meat and veggies for ya, there.

Notice in particular: individualism, property rights, protection, and public participation are paramount.

Bernie Sanders IS NOT A COMMUNIST.

Now, please tell me WHICH OF THE ABOVE tenets you think are wrong???

So when the Tea Party was pointing this stuff out in 2009 and 2010 they were crackpots.

When a 'democratic socialist' plagiarizes this information it's new and shiny.

What are you talking about?

The Tea Party has morphed, but it was always and STILL REMAINS anti-tax, anti-government, and Conservative with a capital C.
Tea Party: Evolution of a revolt

Born out of a series of nationwide protests on tax day in 2009, the Tea Party movement has grown into a populist conservative power that could determine the course of the 2010 elections and President Obama's agenda.

I really don't see how you can compare the

NO. It was not what they wanted to do.
