Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders seeks to have a "Responsible" estate tax that has a $3.5 million exemption and a 65% top estate tax rate.

The repeal bill, S. 860, may be voted on by the Senate, but the chance for a real repeal would only happen after the 2017 Presidential elections.
