“Only morons pay the estate tax.”
— White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, quoted by the New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/us/politics/trump-tax-plan-cohn-mnuchin.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0), at a meeting with Senate Democrats.

Interesting, seeing as how I'll be paying a pretty big estate tax (to the state of Massachusetts) after the first of the year.

I'm sorry, but didn't Trump say something like that about taxes in general during the campaign?

If anything, Cohn is thinking small.
