On Wednesday, June 17 Bloomberg reported that Bill and Hillary Clinton are taking advantage of financial planning strategies to avoid paying a hefty estate tax, even though the Clintons are prominent supports of the tax.
Despite the report, ABC, CBS, and NBC have all ignored the story on both their morning and evening newscasts. According to Bloomberg: The Clintons are using financial planning strategies befitting the top 1 percent of U.S. households in wealth. These moves, common among multimillionaires, will help shield some of their estate from the tax that now top out at 40 percent of assets upon death.
The article continues by detailing the Clintons extensive use of tax loopholes to avoid paying the estate tax:
Of course the media is ignoring it. Then again, the Clintons are broke... unlike someone like Romney or pert near anybody with an ‘R’ after his or her name.
How dare you criticize a woman. You are obviously a sexist.
Maybe we should just keep her barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen where she belongs. /s duh
This must be painfully true.
The media is in the business of lying. I Expect nothing better from them.
Bill and Evita CANNOT do anything right!
In this case, I can see the networks ignoring the story because it is legal to do and the majority of Americans have trusts. I know I do....why would you want the government getting on your stuff after you are gone.
