Large Child Support Payments Spoil Children? Yet Inheritance doesn't?

Conservatism is a jumbled pile of contradictions that seems to satisfy the need of the moment.

1. On rich guy Michael Eisenga's attempt to pay lower child support:
“Eisenga continues to travel in a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce.”
2. On the Republicans opposition to the estate tax, because they think a family’s wealth should be passed on to their children…there is one except if you're Eisenga: Kids get what’s left over, when he's done with it.

Flipping the “death tax” logic on its head, now kids shouldn't get all that wealth?
Journal Times: Rep. Tom Larson, R-Colfax, chairman of the Assembly Committee on Family Law, had defended AB 540 (which would) reduce child-support payments for wealthy individuals. “There’s some value in having some hardship with life,” Larson said. “Even if I were a rich person, I probably would struggle a little bit to make sure my kids earned what they get. What’s the purpose of this money going to child support if it’s only going to create a child with maybe less values?”
"Less values" like the kids greedy dad:
“Eisenga continues to travel in a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce.”
