The reason Senator George Voinovich gives for voting against repealing the inheritance tax is pretty ironic.

Sen. George Voinovich cast a key vote last week against repealing the estate tax, calling the proposal "incredibly irresponsible and intellectually dishonest" at a time when the nation is dealing with a massive federal budget deficit.

"I am thinking not only about the present but about our children and grandchildren and the legacy - or burden - we will leave them," said Voinovich, a Cleveland Republican who was one of just two Republicans in the Senate to against a procedural motion that would have allowed the bill to come up for a final vote.

Yeah, I'm sure children and grandchildren would prefer for the government to get a huge chunk of their inheritance.
