Nope. Not at all. Those loopholes are built into the system to attempt to control what wealthy people do with their money. It's the government's way of saying, "If you don't make decisions with your money that we agree with, then we are just going to take it from you." I tend not to feel sorry for someone based on how much money they have. I believe that there are much more important things in life than your material wealth. But I do support helping those that honestly can't help themselves and I don't agree with penalizing the successful.
