In a Senate Budget Committee hearing, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) worked over Republican President Donald Trump’s Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, The Hill reports.

“Sanders kicked off the hearing by charging that the budget’s repeal of the estate tax would give massive breaks to the country’s wealthiest families — including President Trump’s family, which he estimated would save $4 billion, and the Walton family of Walmart fame, which he said would save $52 billion.”

“Mulvaney and Sanders went on to spar over where Meals on Wheels funding comes from and whether it would cut in the Trump budget, both increasingly exasperated and talking over each other.”

“In the end, as Sanders’s time ran out, they were able to agree on one point regarding the estate tax: that everyone will eventually die.”
