Hillary Suggests Trump’s Death Could Help Stimulate the Economy
According to a story in Young Conservatives:
The death tax. Donald Trump wants to get rid of it, while Hillary Clinton wants to keep it.
In fact, if Trump were to die during a Hillary presidency, she’d be able to do so, so much with his billions!
From Federalist Papers:
Trump, who has said he’s worth $10 billion, has proposed eradicating the federal death tax, also known as the estate tax– a 40 percent levy on wealth that exempts the first $5.45 million per individual.
Pushing class warfare, government confiscation and redistribution of wealth in a speech Thursday, Clinton argued that Trump’s proposed elimination of the federal estate tax is unfair to the “99.8% percent of Americans” who are not millionaires and billionaires.
“If you believe that he’s as wealthy as he says, that alone would save the Trump family $4 billion,” Clinton said. “So they get a $4 billion tax cut and 99.8 percent of Americans would get nothing.”
Redistributing her opponent’s wealth following his death via government confiscation, she contended, would be preferable to his own disposal of his assets.
“Just think about what we could do with those $4 billion,” Clinton said, as the audience cheered. “… I think there’s a lot of better ways to spend the money.”
The estate tax Trump would owe the government upon dying could be spent providing a four-year college degree to 47,000 veterans, a year of health care coverage for nearly three million children or federal assistance for state and local law enforcement agencies, she continued.
