falcon1681: A question for you - If an company BUYS and insurance policy on an employee it costs the employees family NOTHING. If a company has an insurance policy it is on their executives. How do you compare that to the government confiscating money after you are dead? The government is taking away the families money. Perhaps they should by insurance policies like the private sector does.

People have to pay taxes even at the low capital gains rate. Money has been concentrated in the top few percent of the people in this nation and through their 'fat cat' legislation they pay far less tha average people. Exceptions like this are not the norm. The nation must tax the larger estates and prevent the few from concentrating wealth in fewer and fewer hands----at the risk of people like the Koch brothers buying politicians like the Republican Party today.

The "anyway to make a buck at your expense" thing is ok as long as it isn't taxes and doesn't involve the government.

Did not the deceased already pay taxes on his income then bought the gold with his AFTER TAX remainder? If so, this is double taxation and indicative of how the Democratic Party will screw you over even after you die. There is no way anybody should have to pay taxes on money they leave behind to heirs or anyone else because they ALREADY PAID taxes.

That shows that if you life a modest lifestyle and invest wisely you will end up rich. You don't need government to tell you what to do or how to do it. Do your best and even if you don't have a family there is a reward in being a good person. Notice that he didn't live on handouts? Good for him. He must have been the last one in the U.S.A.
