It's Congress' explicit Constitutional power to collect taxes. If you don't like the way you're taxed, vote your Representative and Senators out and replace them with somebody who will tax you fairly.

I don't think she was complaining about living in a mansion. The speech was well thought out to address issues that people are concerned about today to wrangle votes for a particular political party. Wait a minute isn't that exploitation?
Wakes up in a house built by slaves..and then flies off on another vacation in a plane that was built by well-paid Union members who contributed to her husbands campaign whether they wanted to or not !
When you spend almost a billion dollars in an election to get to live in a house, you'd better not come anywhere close to griping about who built it or why it was built. If you think Hillary and Bill made a fortune off their earlier government 'service' just wait until you see how much the Obama's pull in when they leave.
She wasn't even close to griping. She was expressing pride in the progress made in this country since slavery was a common practice. And using that progress to show hope for the future. But of course certain people have so much hatred for the Obama's in them that they can't see that. BTW do you ever wonder about the investment income of Bandar Bush and his family's trust? The Carlyle Group and Halliburton did pretty well during the mess that W got started.
