Mike Bloomberg's presidential run could cost taxpayers billions

Tax expert Edward McCaffery writes that for many billionaires it's tempting to go on a spending spree so that their estates will minimize the eventual tax they have to pay. In the former New York mayor's case, the huge amount of campaign spending will ultimately deprive the US treasury of substantial tax revenue. It's Bloomberg's right to do so, and defeating President Trump may do the public a favor, McCaffery says, but the tax system needs an overhaul

"They have a very good business." Click here for more BI Prime stories....

Meanwhile, Warren was allowed long soliloquies just because Michael Bloomberg passingly referred to her. The crosstalk was bad. Oh, and as a viewer...
