Repeal of Federal Estate Tax?

Donald Trump is on record as favoring the repeal of the federal estate tax. With Republicans controlling the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the federal government, will repeal actually happen? Democrats will filibuster such legislation in the Senate, and it will take 60 votes to stop that filibuster.

But there may be ways to get around the 60 vote requirement, and Donald Trump is likely to explore such strategies. Stay tuned.
