IF the Estate Tax was eliminated, I've read that those that inherit would loose the benefit of receiving the funds at a cost adjusted basis (at the closing price on the date of death). When the inherited funds are sold, the cost basis would be what the decedent paid for the funds. This could be a nightmare trying to find someone elses paperwork & figuring what they originally paid & what tax you now owe.
