Democrat Senators release their tax forms.

Postby Donray » Mon Apr 17, 2017 7:35 pm

What is the deal for just a president to show his taxes? Why don't all the Democrat senators release there tax returns and show how it is done?

People are getting crazy. Why only the presidents taxes why not ALL public officials? Any voted into office should have there tax return public every year.

I'm for it.

The Clintons have been releasing their returns for decades for instance.

Of course, if one had something to hide...

Senate, congress, president - all in public office should be background checked and drug tested, too, just like many jobs, not just their tax returns.

...and due to our current situation, psychological testing, too.

actually just 8 years...from NPR.org

"Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton released eight years worth of tax returns Friday, showing that she and her husband Bill Clinton earned $139 million since 2007 thru 2015. They paid nearly $44 million in federal taxes during that period"...not bad for being dead broke when they left the White House.

Pretty good for a couple who does what exactly? Speeches...that's right...won't release transcripts of those though...

It's too easy to let the Rachel Madow's get all worked up and then OD on Fizzies...with the revelation that Trump paid 38 million on his 152 Million for tax yr 2005...some folks never learn...it far more likely Trump paid more in two years than Clintons did in 8 yrs. He actually built stuff... :shock:

Yes, Hillary did. And before then their tax returns were also public from Bill'a Presidency. She released 8 years because all the ones before were already released. There's no point in releasing what was already released.

See how that works?
