Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery was quoted on the proposal of having the inheritance taxes on wealthy descendants. The article argued that there has been some issues with the estate tax that the number of descendants this tax applied to has dropped 99%. McCaffery described it as being almost a “voluntary tax.”
