    Just two examples of wealthy people suckling the government teat.

    Anyone at Halliburton is another prime example of wealthy teat-sucklers.

    Anyone who works on Wall St. post 2007 - rich government teat-sucklers.

    All of 'em.

    wow your hatred is mind numbing

    since the dead guy EARNED it doesn't he have the right to determine what happens to it

    and your idiotic assumptions are just that

    maybe the heir cared for his father for years

    I know one thing-people like you don't deserve it nor should you pay less income taxes when those socked by the estate tax pay more than you do as it is

    time to stop expecting others to carry your share of the load

    47%don't pay any income taxes yet they certainly use alot more than ZERO percent of the stuff paid for by those taxes

    only the top one percent of people have estates hit by the death tax-do you claim that those one percent use all the stuff paid for by the death tax

    your claim about wall street

    STUPID

    The Tax Foundation - Summary of Latest Federal Individual Income Tax Data

    note what share of the income tax the top 1 percent paid
    "Speaking at a $4,600-a-seat fundraiser in New York for Senator Hillary Clinton, Mr Buffett, who is worth an estimated $52 billion (£26 billion), said: “The 400 of us [here] pay a lower part of our income in taxes than our receptionists do, or our cleaning ladies, for that matter. If you’re in the luckiest 1 per cent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 per cent.”

    Mr Buffett said that he was taxed at 17.7 per cent on the $46 million he made last year, without trying to avoid paying higher taxes, while his secretary, who earned $60,000, was taxed at 30 per cent. Mr Buffett told his audience, which included John Mack, the chairman of Morgan Stanley, and Alan Patricof, the founder of the US branch of Apax Partners, that US government policy had accentuated a disparity of wealth that hurt the economy by stifling opportunity and motivation.

    The comments are among the most signficant yet in a debate raging on both sides of the Atlantic about growing income inequality and how the super-wealthy are taxed."

    what relevance does that have

    its not your percentage of income that counts

    its paying for what you use

    and are you so deluded as to claim that buffett uses more than he pays in taxes

    its time for people like you to stop whining about the rich and spend more time working or learning how to become more valuable in the market place

    what that comment says is untruthful

    buffett takes only 100K in the higher taxed salary income (how many executives of his level take onl 100K in salary?) why does he do that?

    STUPID
    You ignore facts presented RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE.

    Rich Republicans are suckling the government teat with their farm subsidies.

    You don't think Wall Street took bailout money? You don't think Wall Street had anything to do with the collapse?

    No...no you're right. The people who were already living in the projects caused the economy to collapse.

    Talk about STUPID.

    He's talking about the Capital Gains, man.

    C'mon. Don't act so blind.

    The $46 Million he made is only taxed at 17%, while his receptionist pays a higher tax on her income.

    IT'S UTTER FACT. It's not a lie at all.

    you come up with a few examples that don't counter the fact that

    1) the richest 1 percent pay 40 percent of the income tax and people like you claim that is not enough
    2) the top 5% pay more than the REST OF THE COUNTRY and GET absolutely no extra benefits and can be outvoted by those who dont have as much skin in the game
    3) those hit by the death taxes are the same class that already pays 40 times as much of the income taxes than than almost 50% of the country

    what is causing the economy to collapse are those who vote in more and more free spending politicians who buy their votes with money taken from a small group

    since most of the voters don't understand the cost of government they have no reason to try to cut down the reckless spending

    its a bit dishonest

    he paid a higher rate on his salary than she did

    and if she had capital gains they wouldn't be taxed higher than his capital gains

    and he also could pay himself a salary of ten twenty or forty million
