We were going in the right direction during the Bush administration but the Obama group wants to go backwards and INCEASE the tax.
The exemption will get smaller.
I could never see how the government could lay any claim to what a person builds up or saves.

Unfortunately, the new brand of politician doesn't see Mr Sukup's business as his family's. It belongs to the collective. If he is a successful businessman that has a good income, he is also viewed as one of the evil rich (exempt from this rich category are Hollywood actors & directors, athletes and anyone else that makes a lot of money but leans left.) It is sad to watch a country that prided itself on being self sufficient fall into the chasm of envy. I am sure they feel that Mr Sukup didn't sacrifice and work hard for his business. They feel that the heirs are getting something that they didn't build and don't deserve eventhough they are the ones that sacrificed along side Mr Sukup. They probably missed time with their father while he was at work and sacrificed early on things they needed because the company needed the money more.

Let's just punish the builders and poor pity on those who have chosen to live off the generosity of others. This is so sad!!!

It's as simle as this- IF YOU DIDN'T EARN IT YOU DON'T DESERVE IT.
