Barney Frank: Death Tax Not Punishment; Heirs Didnít Do Anything to Deserve Inheritance
breitbart ^

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.

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.

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.

Either the heirs get the inheritance -OR- the government TAKES IT..
WHY? does the government deserve it?..
Why does the gov't deserve ANY OF IT at all?..

Mr. Frank obviously, and clearly, believes that nobody has the right to do as he or she damn well pleases with the money he or she earns---whether giving it to their children or to whomever---even after the State (let's quit deluding ourselves that we have a government) lays its first claim upon its arbitrarily-decided percentage of what the indivdual earns.

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.)

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?

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!

It is not as common today as in my parents generation but children sometimes do earn their inheritance.

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...

Barney Frank: Death Tax Not Punishment; Heirs Didn’t Do Anything to Deserve Inheritance

Barney, you don't have to "do" anything to be the beneficiary of a gift. Many people are the recipients of gifts that they don't deserve at all as shown by their subsequent abuse of that gift, such as you and the gift of life.

Just another example that liberals think the money belongs to the government and that they give you what they think is “fair.”

Really, the only way to settle this is to challenge the IRS, Barney Frank, or whoever wants your inheritance to a duel to the death.

They don't respond to normal human emotions or rational arguments. They are flesh-eating bacteria that only responds to disinfectant.

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.

Yeah, but the government did earn their inheritance.

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.

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...

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.

And the government already taxed the earnings that make up the inheritance. This is taxation on the residue after the first taxation.
