Skip to comments.Barney Frank: Death Tax Not Punishment; Heirs Didnít Do Anything to Deserve Inheritance
Posted on 12/19/2010 6:11:19 PM PST by ChicagoConservative27
Mr. Frank's attitude seems to be that Americans need to justify why they should keep the money they inherit instead of the government needing to justify why they should be allowed to confiscate it.

Neither did you!
Yeah, well, what did the government do to deserve it?
Government didn’t do anything to earn it either.
Taxes aren’t punishment?
Not even the gas tax?
The Tobacco tax?
The income tax?
Barney Frank represents some of the STUPIDEST VOTERS in our country.
You fat faggot!
No Bawney you freak of nature. But the person who died worked their @$$ off for the money and they therefore have the right to leave it to whom they choose.
Another reason why my coin collection is only worth “10,000” dollars, and I keep about 4000 in my checking account at any given time.
It is not as common today as in my parents generation but children sometimes do earn their inheritance. They worked like slaves on farms etc.
....and where’s my sr discount?
He exposes himself more profoundly every time he opens his mouth.
And if he really believes taxation is not punishment, or attempted behaviour modification, he certainly doesn't pay a great deal of attention to the bulk of the non-income taxes that are imposed. (As it is, tt would be a waste of breath, probably, to try impressing upon him the implicitly punitive nature of the income tax.)

Barney Frank is desthpicable!
If I had one more day to live, and I found out I had to give all I had to the government, I would figure out how to transfer my money to my children under the table or simply burn it all.
The heirs likely had a lot more to do with growing the inheritance than the government ever did. Fact is, the government took their pound of flesh every year. Why do they need more?
And, then, there are the wishes of the person who created the estate. He had a choice of giving it to his heirs or the government. He chose his heirs. Why are his wishes not respected?
Wow. For a guy who likes his privacy, he sure seems to think he knows about everyone else’s family and business and how they should be run!
What a thieving little bastard.
It’s as simple as “it doesn’t belong to you”.
Barney! A citizen’s earned wealth is not for the state to confiscate upon their death! The government should be doing everything to protect a citizen’s right and to honor their last wills, not thwarting them and robbing a family of the fruits of their labor!
You said it for me. Thanks!
How could Bawney possibly know that?
My wife and her siblings worked their butts off for no money in their father's business when they were young. He's long gone. But my wife's aging mother wants to leave something to her children - they deserve the money and the government should get nothing! But the government will steal a great portion of it. My wife and I give large amounts of money, up to the limit, every year to our adult children because we don't want the government getting it all when we die. Our children deserve their inheritance! Barney Fwank has a stick up his...
That’s the thief telling you he’s taking your money because your son didn’t do anything to deserve it. Oh, for the days when they knew what to do to thieves.
Just another example that liberals think the money belongs to the government and that they give you what they think is “fair.”
Frank is right in line with Marx.
Rule 3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.
They don't respond to normal human emotions or rational arguments. They are flesh-eating bacteria that only responds to disinfectant.
And the thieving wastrel Feds did?
Actually what a lot of people do is go out and buy a lot of very expensive antique furniture. Then they claim that their household furnishings are worth nothing and leave them to their kids.
Not that I would know. I did have some antique firearms to leave but then there was an unfortunate boating accident...
Go tell that to the farm families that have worked their entire lives on the farms that they are going to have to sell half of their acreage to pay the inheritance taxes. Barney needs to go sit on a hoe handle and spin.
What a selfish, ignorant group these people are. Business owners and farmers . . . no more votes for these idiots. This is what they think of you and your families.
The point is...the government...does NOTHING for the money!! NOTHING!!!
The IRS could have confiscated all a person's earnings but instead let him/her keep some of to build an estate to tax once he/she no longer needed it.
Wasn't that nice of them?
IF Frank were able to have an heir, he might realize how frikkin’ stupid his comment was. Maybe the terms “family business”, “family farm”, or “Smith & Son” will sound familiar to the porker.
Irony I don't need to expound upon.
Hey Barney? What about the social contract? That I want my children’s and my grandchildren’s lives to be better than mine? So I clutched my dollars, sacrificed my whole life and gave them education and other goods, and then an inheritance. Who in the world are you to tell me that I cant take care of my own??? I paid my taxes to the government all along...so the Government and assholes like you have NO claim to my money...you are in the wrong country...
I will refuse the temptation to say anything else.
Hey Barney, you Fag...
Part of why I had children late in life was to have heirs to give what I have accumulated.
Pure theft of assets from people who already paid massive taxes and wish to give the family farm/business to his/her kids.
Frank is a typical democrat party professional parasite, who has never worked an honest day in his evil life.
Dear Barney you fa**ot, it is not your business what we do with OUR money especially where it goes after we die so **** off ! Of course you are a whore to large corporate interest who would love to see small and family business get decimated and this tax serves that purpose !
You people are exercising remarkable restraint.
And here I was sitting back smugly thinking I had successfully hijacked this thread.
And what did politicians (especially scumbag politicians like Barney “Male Whorehouse in DC” Frank) do to deserve the right to dictate to people what they can do with their private property?
Hey Barn, sell that sh!t to my kids who did not get all the attention I and my wife wanted to give them because our work schedules were such.
Sorry to hear about your boat. I'm not into boating. But I do have broken locks on my toolsheds...
Heirs sacrificed family time when the productivity and wealth was created, not that Barney can relate to that ... but more importantly, WHAT DID BARNEY FRANK DO TO DESERVE TO CONFISCATE THE RIGHTFUL INHERITANCE?
Actually, the government stealing money from those who earned their money are the socialist who want to use it to destroy America even more on their failed liberals causes and agendas.
Perfectly logical in his mind. Children belong to the state, not their parents.
