Trump Should Take On The Real ‘Global Elite’ — His Kids

Share
mob

If you have a weak stomach, the GOP convention promises to be emetic.

Not only will Donald Trump, a certified thrice-married birther, be accepting the nomination of the party that gave us Abraham Lincoln and, much more recently, decades of braying about traditional marriage, but you’ll also have the abdomen-churning pleasure of watching his children and his third wife speak directly to the nation.

Meanwhile, both living former Republican presidents and the GOP’s last nominee for president will be spending the week trying to pretend that 2016 isn’t happening.

For anyone who cares about America, decency and tolerance, this convention will be an informercial for what’s gone wrong. But the inclusion of the Trump family suggests there could be useful message broadcast out of Cleveland — if only in the subtext of Trump and his older children’s speeches.

To understand why, lets look at some numbers.

Amidst the constant stream of grim news that has marked this fateful yar, we actually got some good news this week. The latest data from the IRS shows that the incomes of the bottom 99 percent of Americans grew 3.9 percent in 2014, which just happens to be the year Obamacare went into effect. It was the best yearly growth for working families since 1998.

In the same year, the top 1 percent saw their income grow at an even faster 7.7 percent.

America’s richest families have captured most of the real income growth since the recession ended in 2009, continuing a trend that began in 1980 of massive and luxurious gains for the few million people at the top while the 300 million or so other Americans enjoy almost no new wage increases from the most radical series of technological advances that have ever been crammed into four decades.

Privilege. It quickly become one of the most politicized words in the English language as we were told to “check it,” or were accused of envying it while getting rich on a few dollars a day in food stamps. But privilege is the beating heart of the twin crises of our time — climate change and inequality. Some billionaires just really resent being asked to not boil the planet or pay taxes, even if the inevitable alternative is famine, drought, and massive social unrest.

And foremost among these billionaires is the likely Republican nominee for president, who will be the first presidential nominee in almost fifty years not to release his tax returns, despite two dozen promises to do so.

Donald Trump has promised to make climate change worse by refusing to believe it’s actually a real problem. And his solution to economic inequality?

Cutting taxes for the rich and their corporations, slashing regulations that protect workers and the environment, and completely eliminating the inheritance tax.

Getting rid of any taxes on the giant inheritances that a tiny fraction of Americans who have won the lottery of birth and stand to gain millions from their relatives’ deaths has long been a Republican passion project. Congress, which tends to be far richer and far more likely to be the beneficiary or benefactors of great inheritances, has shockingly obliged.

The tax was nearly eliminated by conservatives until it was reinstated after President Obama’s re-election in 2012.

The right has done an amazing job of getting the public on their side in this issue, which is a tribute to their marketing abilities. Bloomberg‘s Barry Ritholtz explains:

In 2013, 2,596,993 Americans died, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

About 5,000 of them paid a tax after that mortal event. To be more accurate, their estates paid whatever tax was owed. That means 2,591,993 Americans died that year without paying any tax.

In other words, just 0.19 percent of all deaths in 2013 resulted in a tax. When 99.81 percent of all deaths don’t create a taxable event, calling it a death tax is mathematically nonsensical.

What is the actual trigger for this taxable event? If your estate is worth less than $5.43 million dollars in 2015 (or $10.86 million dollars for a couple), you are exempt from the federal estate tax.

Republicans have made this perfectly sensible and necessary tax unpopular by branding it a “death tax.”

“Why would someone use the phrase ‘death tax’ when more than 99 percent of deaths don’t result in a tax?” Ritholtz asks. “Because he is either a) innumerate, b) ignorant or c) trying to deceive you. There are no other possibilities.”

Remember when Trump said he was taking on “global elites?” Apparently he’s doing it that by making sure that his kids’ kids’ kids’ never have to fly coach.

In exchange, we get around $320 billion added to our deficit, which is about 160 times the funding to fight Zika that President Obama has requested and that the GOP Congress has refused to fund without cuts and other important civic needs like flying the Confederate Flag. Or almost as much as we’ll “save” by passing costs on to seniors if we enact Paul Ryan’s Medicare voucher plan.

Democrats need to fight the fire that’s burning up our economy with fire. They should start calling the inheritance tax a “global elite tax.” Mostly because it is one.

Some of these global elites will be functional and somewhat impressive people like Ivanka Trump. And some will have the dull stares of Trump’s two older sons, who some genius nicknamed “Uday and Qusay.”

The children of the wealthiest, who are sucking up most of the gains of the economy, will earn multiples of what most Americans will earn in a lifetime on the day their parents die. The least we can do is expect they’ll be taxed for it the same way you’re taxed for the money you sweat all week to earn.

Of course, the greatest commercial for a “global elite tax” on inheritances is Trump himself.

He likes to brag that he started off with “a small million dollar loan,” which was anything but small in the 1970s and was also matched exponentially by a $70-million loan guarantee from his father, who was still paying him a six-figure salary into the 1980s and was still bailing him out in the 1990s.

Denying that even this booster rocket filled with privilege aided his ascent gives Trump the fantasy that he’s self-made — that he some how overcome his childhood of attending schools and making connections that gave him access to wealth and power beyond the imagination of most Americans.

Opponents of affirmative action often talk about the stigma the beneficiaries of the program must carry knowing they got some assistance from a program designed to expand our economy’s gene pool. But those who benefit from the inbreeding of wealth suffer no stigma. Instead, they get to invent myths in which they’ve conquered all with the help of small loan, ignoring the millions of Americans who have to take on loans in hopes of earning the college degree and doing better than their parents.

Of course, Hillary Clinton’s descendants will benefit from the great machinery of wealth perpetuation conservatives have built, even if she wasn’t born into privilege as Trump was. And she, like most rich people, is structuring her wealth to avoid estate taxes.

But at least she’s not trying to destroy any hope that we can move beyond an economy that has been captured by the malefactors of great wealth.

While Trump cuts taxes for the richest, Clinton’s plan makes sure that millionaires pay at least the same tax rates as nurses and adds a surtax for those who earn over $5 million to fund services like universal pre-K. She would also raise the estate tax on her family.

Our winner-take-all economy has led to a winner-take-all political system in which birth increasingly determines success in life.

When the Trump kids speak, it’s our chance to see the global elite in their natural environment — on a platform built by their parents’ success. When you see them there, think about setting them free from the burden of dependency as we take on the feudalism of the global elite.

    Unfortunately, for our fiscal integrity, the so called death tax strategy is as effective as the NRA approved gun control proposal advanced by the GOP, which gives the FBI 3 days to prove that a person is a terrorist who should not be allowed to buy a gun. Never mind that if the FBI can prove that a person is a terrorist that person would be locked up!
    Hearing people like Trump and Romney articulating populist themes, after investing heavily abroad, outsourcing jobs, and not having the faintest idea of what low middle class and poor Americans go through to raise their families, has got to be the greatest joke in history.
    And yet, millions of Americans, including those struggling to make ends meet, support one of the elitist whose actions contribute to their demise.
    Happy Fourth of July!

      It is disingenuous of them not to mention the effects of mechanization and thecnology, because it puts a lie to some of their talking points. Trade deals, Labor Unions, and regulations are to blame, but mostly it is ” that foreigner, that other”.
      If you believe that trade deals have hurt the US worker, is Trump who you want looking out for the ” working Joe”? Who really wants to trust their economic future to those small hands with manicured fingers? Who wants to trust the man whose history is all about defrauding those same workers.

        Robotics, and new technologies in general, have had a major impact on the dramatic reduction in labor needs, in the manufacturing and service sectors, during the last few decades.
        Off shoring, or outsourcing as many people call it, as well as substantial investment in foreign markets, is another component in the financial decline of our middle class. In all fairness, that trend is not limited to Republicans, and it has as much to do with a desire to reduce operating costs to increase profit margins, as it does to get a share of sales in emerging markets. Profits from investments in foreign ventures are a major part of most investors and corporate portfolios.
        Another reason for the angst that so many displaced American workers feel is exacerbated by our refusal to invest in infrastructure. In addition to not being able to outsource infrastructure jobs, such investment has the added benefit of modernizing our transportation system, ports, airports, potable water supply, natural gas supply system, and the power grid to help make us more competitive.
        Last, but not least, is our refusal to pay for what we need and benefit from to end our dependence on borrowing and accumulation of debt. The allegation that we pay more taxes than most other industrialized nations is simply not true. Federal government revenues are not enough to offset outlays. Reducing social programs that are already substandard when compared to those in countries like Germany, Sweden, Norway, and Switzerland, to name a few, is not the answer.
        Again, investing at home would not only create jobs, which would reduce unemployment costs and increase disposal income, a key component to prosperity in a consumer oriented economy such as ours, it would also increase our government’s tax base, and increase our standard of living, not to mention preparing for the effects of global warming, while we can do it effectively and at a relatively low cost, instead of waiting until the problem reaches crisis proportions and we have to rush to protect our coastal areas, provide potable and irrigation water, and protect our environment.

    The credibility of Congress and the courts is zero. Wonder why so many Americans work under the table? Mechanic explained that all you can find these days are chinese made auto parts which are junk..the US factories were closed by decision of greedy executives. Went on to say why pay tax to entities that ship American jobs overseas, allow foreign crap made in low wage countries (especially China and Mexico) to enter the USA untaxed, screw working people, and cut income taxes on the wealthy decision makers (Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan).

    Hillary Clinton is NOT the answer. Wisconsin voters need to send Paul Ryan back home to fatten up on dairy and cheese rather than making the mess in Congress worse. The anti gun representatives and senators also need to be voted out. Criminal coddling judges need to be impeached or retired. Frankly, all the gun control laws should be void until capital punishment is in use in all 50 states and US territories. The criminal justice system needs a huge enema to deal with killers effectively and permanently, while absolute protection of the Second Amendment is afforded.

    To understand this article so that it makes any sense we must first learn what a liberal means when he uses the pejorative term “person of privilege”.

    Liberals consider “persons of privilege” to be anyone who:

    1) Has a slightly nicer car then them.
    2) Lives in a bigger house then them.
    3) Dates, or is married to a prettier woman or man than them.
    4) Has a dollar more than them in their pocket.
    5) Is a professional, like a doctor, making an upper income (even though they attended many years of school and didn’t drop out of school in the 10th grade like one who wanted to just “hang out” and be “cool” at the time.)

    Most of us would say, “wait a minute, you are describing envy and jealousy, not privilege” and you’d be right, but then that also means you don’t think like a liberal because liberals believe anyone uppity enough to take charge of their lives and succeed is to be scorned as not worthy of their success because, as one of their leaders, phony Indian Lizzy Warren likes to say: “YOU didn’t build that!”
    (We ALLOWED you to build it.)

      First of all, I’m a liberal, and there’s not a man alive that has a better looking wife than me. I’ve been very lucky, and that’s all there is to that. But to say, it’s envy, or petty jealousy, when a bunch of corporate types, lobbyists, and billionaires buy privilege, and rig the system, and become mega wealthy at everyone else’s expense. No Sir! That’s not envy. That’s what anger coming from injustice, and the determination to level the playing field, looks like. To not be bullied by big money fixers, and their hired mouthpieces into handing over to them on a silver platter, what is supposed to be everyone’s Country. You lay down for the greedy shysters, grifters, and let them gamble your kids future away if you want. Me, I’m a Liberal. by God. And I’ll be damned if I’ll be cowed into being anybody’s dumb sucker.

            David, you might want to shut up now. Yu are losing this battle of wits, KoA is winning. But that’s fairly easy against an unarmed foe.

          It’s also hilarious that the greatest personal attack you can muster (since you are unable to mount any kind of effective argument) is “You’re poor!”. Friggin’ feeble.

      You are so full of it.

      I am a liberal, and I am a person of privilege because I grew up with two parents who were college-educated, had professional jobs, and kept from us kids any awareness that there were times when money was tight. I attended a very good private day school as a scholarship student because my mother taught there; I was admitted to an Ivy League university and exposed to music, arts, literature, accomplished intelligent people, and good ethical training from childhood on. My family knew community leaders, elected officials, and publishers and editors; our parents’ opinions carried weight with them. I was taught what fork to use and how to speak properly in several languages.

      My parents made, jointly, $32,000/year in 1970 when I graduated from high school. We were not wealthy, but we had all the privileges that accrue to those with connections and opportunities and education and access to books and people of other backgrounds and experiences. None of the qualities and attributes we were imbued with had to do with money, cars, the size of a house or accoutrements like a partner’s attractiveness; it had to do with the quality of our upbringing and the fact that no doors were closed to us should we choose to walk through them. That is privilege.

      The difference between most people of privilege and my family is that most of them take their role in society for granted and aren’t even aware (or are in denial) about how privileged they are. As a result, they assign the privileges they were born with, or given, to their own specialness — but in reality, most of them aren’t special at all (I went through K-12 and University with hundreds of them): they’re just born in the right circumstances.

      Al of your bullshit shows just how ignorant you are about real values, and that’s the difference between most Democrats and most Republicans: the former value such intangibles as fairness, justice for all (not just themselves), equal opportunity, a balance between capital and labor, education, etc. Republicans, for the most part, value everything in terms of money (as you clearly do).

      Furthermore, don’t misquote Elizabeth Warren. She said “Congratulations on your successful business. But you didn’t build it all by yourself; the trucks that deliver your products drive on roads that the rest of us built; your overseas deals are safe because of the Armed Forces that the rest of us pay for; you have clean water in your factory that the rest of us maintain …”

        Well said. Thank you for a breath of sanity. And a well written essay on privilege.

      “We” don’t need anything to understand it. Only dimwits like you have to recite your rationalizations with ever-increasing intensity to convince yourself and anyone foolish enough to waste his or her time reading such rubbish.

    or if DONNY DUMP was to die today who knows then all what money he says he has and truly dose have might just come out to his family going right from DUMP TOWERS to the ACA (or Obama care ) to food stamps and SSI . because he lied about every thing and that he wasn’t a billionaire but owed $$$ billionaires instead

    “Our winner-take-all economy has led to a winner-take-all political system in which birth increasingly determines success in life.”

    This is why I chose not to have kids and have no regrets about that decision.

    it’s funny, i saw a story recently where in a 2011 wells fargo disclosure he said he was worth only $4.5B and only 4yrs later in his 2015 FEC disclosure he’s suddenly worth over 2x more? I’d say there’s zero chance of that! he’s a disgusting fraud and that’s why he won’t release the returns. i hope hillary and the pacs will hammer him on this and force him to…his lies about being under audit so he can’t are so pathetic. shame on american politics for even allowing someone so utterly repulsive as a candidate!

    It’s been reported that Trump’s closest advisors are his kids. Pretty frightening when you consider that their only credentials are that they happen to be in “The Lucky Gene Pool Club”.

    The most useful thing this convention could do would be if the Secret Service backed down and let all the delegates bring their assault rifles and handguns as some have demanded – maybe some grenades, as well. I’d be happy to watch the “floor fights,” for once for some genuine entertainment.
