canu: This is one of your best posts. I know and see poor people that work very hard and yet are not able to get ahead because of the low wages they are paid by multi millionaires. The notion that people are poor because they don't work is purely a myth. Yes, some people are poor because of bad, uneducated choices they make. And, it is true some are to lazy to work. I also know some that inherited their parents wealth and have gone through their inheritance because they were too lazy to work and spent money foolishly. I agree that the inheritance tax needs to be brought back for estates over 4 million.
