The Clintons’ games highlight how the tax fails at its aims of preventing the inheritance of wealth and privilege. Instead, the tax forces the wealthy to play games to pass on their wealth. These games don’t add to the economy, they just enrich the estate-planning industry.

After only a few days of campaigning, the credibility of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign is being questioned. The critique comes after her claim that all of her grandparents had immigrated to the U.S., a statement that was investigated and declared false.

Hillary doesn’t just fall short of the Left’s ideals — it is that these shortcomings are precisely what make her the frontrunner. She is on the path to the nomination because of her prowess in fundraising, her proximity to power and the support she enjoys from lobbyists.

Enthusiasm for Clinton’s candidacy is more asserted than obvious. That’s why the smartest thing about Clinton’s announcement wasn’t the testimonials from “everyday Americans.” It was that there was so little Hillary Clinton in it.
