Accuracy in Media

This sounds sketchy, which is par for the course for the Clintons:

Hillary Clinton will call for an increase in the estate tax on the campaign trail, a plan one senator says will be a win for the life insurance industry—a sector that has given generously to the former secretary of state throughout her political career.

Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday that a campaign aide close to Clinton has said that the Democratic presidential candidate will advocate for an increase in the estate tax rate, also known as the death tax, from 40 percent to 45 percent. In addition to raising the rate, Clinton wants to lower the threshold for when taxing would occur on individual estates from $5.45 million to $3.5 million, which is identical to a plan previously put forth by President Obama in a budget proposal.
