Cruz bests Sanders on CNN debate
CNN featured a 90-minute debate between Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday night. Ed Rogers of the Washington Post says that Cruz “outclassed” Sanders. Odd for a liberal paper.
Cruz made a salient point about the death tax. Family offspring often have to sell businesses, which would have employed people, to pay taxes. Cruz seemed to imply that people who inherit estates have a moral obligation to try to employ people with profitable businesses. People who are good at running restaurants or especially franchise stores generally learned these skills from families.
