Trustafarians Whine That Other People's Taxes Are Too Low

Dana Milbank --- one of the senior Obama fluffers at the Democrat Party Propaganda Organ known as the Washington Post --- brings forth anecdotes from wealthy jerks who complain that the tax rates in the USA are shamefully low.

"I'm in favor of higher taxes on people like me," declared Eric Schoenberg, who is sitting on an investment banking fortune. He complained about "my absurdly low tax rates."

Most of the people interviewed in the story are sitting on inherited wealth; and naturally its easy to squander wealth created by other people. It's what Government is all about. The thing is, there's nothing stopping these people from giving the Government all of their wealth if they wanted to.

But that isn't what they really want. They want to remain rich, but be lauded for their social responsibility or whatever. Meanwhile, they want to rape the entrepreneurial class that is still trying to build a fortune... keeping them in their place as it were.

If these dinguses feel so darned bad about being rich, why don't they give away their fortunes to charity and serve the poor. Oh, wait, that would involve actual sacrifice, wouldn't it?
