And I think we already have the best vetting system available.  The ballot box. 

At least with birtherism there was a valid underlying concern.  One of the only requirements for the presidency is being a natural born citizen.  So attempts at conflating a tax return with birtherism kind of fall flat.  It doesn't matter how crappity smacking stupid, partisan and borderline racist the insinuations that a black man wasn't born in this country were, at least there's a Constitutional justification for asking the question.

Not so much with tax returns.

I'm not fond of leftists falling in line with this idea that someone elected to the presidency needs to be of noble stock.  Groomed since infancy for rulership.  I really don't think there's anything more anti American than when I hear people say "We need to fix the system so a Trump can't happen again."  What they're saying is "We need to make sure the American people don't really have a say in their leadership."

I grew up in a family of tax accountants.  For ten years I worked as a tax accountant, for two of them as the managing partner of the family firm.

I have never once looked at a presidential candidate's tax return.  About 8 people in the country will even know what the damn thing says.  And 4 of them will spin from a Democratic angle and the other 4 from a Republican angle.  A tax return shows you less than nothing.  I mean exactly what information do you think you can glean from a K1 passthru reported as passive income flowing to page 1 of a return?  You think you're going to learn something from 500 of them?  lol

What this "Show your tax return or else" bullshit guarantees is whoever we have as president will never have actually worked or done or accomplished anything in their lives.  How the hell is that an appropriate leader for the United States? 

Are we really that hungry for a Prince Charles and Princess Diana of our own?

Are people suggesting Congress make a law that all presidential candidates show their tax returns, or is this just singling Trump out, saying his records must be subpoenaed for some reason?

If it's the first, that's just absurd and very likely unconstitutional.

If it's the second, on what basis should his privacy be so violated?

For those saying releasing tax records isn’t a legal matter: Can I get the law that required Obama to publicly release his birth certificate that Trump harped on about for several years?  Roll Eyes


None.  Obama caved to public pressure.

This is what I keep saying and yet the cycle of "it will show shady connections to Russia and Suadi Arabia" keeps repeating.  When I point out that he probably isn't getting income from companies called "Shady Russian Connections, LLC" and the like, it is simply ignored.

The basis is that the Democrats have regained the majority in the House and Russiagate failed so they need to go on another fishing expedition to find something they can use politically against this President, even if all they find is Trump is not as wealthy as he's said he is!

Majority of Americans believe House Dems should release Trump's tax returns: poll





What do you think that Trump could have done illegally and got away with it?
I have someone that does my taxes, and all is done the way it should and could be done, and I am sure Trump has people taking care of his way beyond anything you know about paying your tax. And what does his tax have to do with taking care of the country? You left wing people are so ignorant it is unbelievable. You would do anything to try and get your new (D) socialist party into power so the whole damn country could be another California.

We never got to see Obama’s school records did we?

Oh Jasmine, you're so sweet and naive.

Read up on Al Capone and how the only way the Feds could put him in prison was for tax evasion.



So you think Trump has been evading taxes illegally for all the years he is in business. Or just since he has become president, for free by the way. He donates his salary. How come you never mention that?

So, if you and Jasmine and Bert were to have your way, Al Capone would still be lording over Chicago and the entire midwest until his natural death. His reign of terror over law-abiding citizens would have gone unchecked. Nice.



Are you that dumb? Capone got caught by the tax bureau. Not because he had to release his taxes to the public. If you don’t pay your tax, Uncle Sam will be knocking on your door. Just like they would do to Trump. You all tried that with Romney and it didn’t work. Give it up loser.
