ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Democrats lack a winning platform on estate taxes - work hard, save, invest and after death, Uncle Sam gets half. Why would anyone in their right mind put any effort into work or take any chances on starting a new business if they knew half was going to the government? It shows hard work and risk-taking isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Democrats don’t realize that unlike the Joe Kennedys of this world, children might not keep accumulating wealth. Taking half of what someone put his life into might end up ripping that life apart. The whole process smacks of that old Marxist slogan, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”
