Barney Frank Says Death Tax Not Punishment Because Heirs Didn’t do Anything to Deserve It … But Government Does
Double taxation death taxes are AOK for Barney Franks.
US Rep. Barry Franks (D-MA) says that high estate taxes are perfectly ok because the heirs did nothing to earn it and that its a pure gift to someone who hasn’t done it on their own and did not work hard. They were just lucky enough to be related to some one who gave them the money.
But in the eyes of Liberal Democrats, its just fine for the government to take someone’s money where the government did nothing to earn it or work for it . In fact, the government has already taxed the assets at least once. These liberals would rip the gold fillings from your teeth if possible.
