    If what Barney Frank says is true, that what you inherit isn't worked for thus should be taxed at 55%, what does that say about what the government gets in taxes from us?

    The government didn't work for it. Why do they feel they have a right to all of that money? This assumes that what we didn't actually work for automatically belongs to the government.

    This is why Barney Frank's argument is wrong. You shouldn't be taxed higher just because, in his opinion, you didn't work for it. As long as it's legal it doesn't matter how you got it. What right does he have to decide the level of taxation according to how it was obtained?

    Watch the video:

    Barney Frank and his hypocrisy

    The number one goal of Marxism is the removal of private property. The ownership of all property by the government.

    I think we're seeing this in Barney Frank.

    So the work of a Life time is basically split between the Fed's, the Insurance Companies, and the Estate planners, with a tiny bit left for your those that really matter? What a Utopia We live in Comrade!

    Government's favorite past time is playing God. Why don't the Puppet Masters want us to have any toys Mudwhistle? Is it us or is it them?

    Oh boo hoo hoo!

    I'll only get to start out with a sum only equivalant to 100 years the median average PRETAXED incomes of the American family.

    That's not fair! wah! wah wah!

    It's about the Principle, not the Principal, Sparky. Warren Buffet really thanks you for the scheme you just implemented to make him richer, him and his Insurance Companies. Get a clue.

    I've been watching this estate tax argument for a while.

    Why the hell should Uncle Sam get any part of someones estate?? Money earned has already been taxed. Talk about double dipping.

    Who would expect anything else from Frank and his lefty, looney friends. After all. It other peoples money.

    Greedy bastards.

    I'll also not the hypocrisy of someone who has a huge pension to be paid for by taxpayers for his "services" of overseeing the financial crisis saying that parents who save some money for the future can't pass it along to their children.
