Eliminating The Paris Hilton Effect

I have an idea. Propose a flat income tax at whatever rate balances the federal budget. And institute a death tax at a rate of 100% above a $5M exemption. The latter will eliminate dynasties and force rich people to give back before they die. The former will force everyone to pay attention and will provide an incentive toward the American dream of properity from hard work, and will eliminate the Paris Hilton effect.
