End Inheritance Taxes

Reader comment on item: The Wreckage of Endowed Chairs

Submitted by David Ryan (United States), Sep 5, 2021 at 19:56

The Death Tax encourages deductible donations to universities and "charities" that end up, in the second or third generation if not immediately, in the hands of communists and other anti-Americans to be used to pervert and destroy institutions, the country and the world. Absent the tax incentives for these contributions, more of the money would be passed to the children and grandchildren of the super-wealthy where it would be better spent on parties, prostitutes, drugs and alcohol. Please, before Soros, Buffett and Gates die.
