Death tax

Donald Trump has proposed eliminating the inheritance tax (death tax) for wealthy Americans. That means when he dies, his heirs will be able to inherit his wealth and not pay taxes on it, as will all other wealthy Americans. That will be the end of what democracy we have left. It was Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis who said, “You can have great concentrations of wealth or democracy, but not both at the same time.” Trump is in favor of great concentrations of wealth.
