DEMS don't really care about Trump's taxes. All they care about is finding something, anything they can use against him.

Look at the new investigation Congress has opened up. It's a fishing expedition. Congress is sending letters to 81 people who know Trump that basically say "What do you have on him that we can use?"

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) Democrats launched a sweeping new probe of President Donald Trump, an aggressive investigation that threatens to shadow the president through the 2020 election season with potentially damaging inquiries into his White House, campaign and family businesses.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Monday his panel was beginning the probe into possible obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power and is sending document requests to 81 people linked to the president and his associates.

The broad investigation could be setting the stage for an impeachment effort, although Democratic leaders have pledged to investigate all avenues and review special counsel Robert Mueller's upcoming report before trying any drastic action.

Trump denounced the probe Tuesday, tweeting that Nadler and other Democrats "have gone stone cold CRAZY. 81 letter sent to innocent people to harass them. They won't get ANYTHING done for our Country!"

Nadler said the document requests, with responses to most due by March 18, are a way to "begin building the public record."

If his naysayers have an issue with the taxes he paid, they need to take that up with the people that write the tax codes that allow him to reduce his taxable income.
At least 90% of Americans have little to no understanding of how taxes work whatsoever. They see Trump pays barely any tax and it is "OMG...he's stealing from us all! He's a billionaire and not paying his fair share!" CNN and the rest of the MSM run non-stop articles and TV segments on "Trump's tax rate is 3%, while most American's are paying 3 times what Trump pays in taxes!"

Those people have no idea that he maximized his deductions legally based on the tax code, and if they have an issue with it, their issue should be with the people in Washington that passed the tax laws over the last 20 years, and not with the people actually filing their taxes.

Romney was grilled over this in his 2012 run. He had somewhere around a 12% tax rate because his income was mostly based on capital gains. Obama even brought it up in a debate against him. The public was outraged someone so wealthy paid "so little" in taxes.

That said, Trump shouldn't have promised to release them after the audit....but is the audit even done?

If I were him I would have released them and just put all the blame on the current system...


"Look, I paid all the taxes that I needed to. The tax system has loopholes that everyone should take advantage of, and I did use all the ones I could legally use. If you want to fix this I would be more than up to that challenge" blah, blah, blah....


By not releasing them he looks like hes trying to hide shit IMO.

They just want something to beat him over the head with, to attack him on the daily news cycle and to sow doubt in the minds of the uninformed.

I generally agree with Ryans post, but don't like some of the language.

I would not feed the POS leeches by saying he barely paid any taxes.
The last return showed he paid 18 MILLION DOLLARS.
How is that barely any taxes!!!!
The language I would use was holy frick, PRESIDENT Trump paid 18 million dollars income tax for a single year,
that is way more than his fair share, and more than all the POS leeches whining will earn in their lifetime!!!
Instead of being a jealous POS, show some appreciation for him paying way more than his fair share, so the little guys don't have to cover it.
I guarantee the people protesting do not pay 3 times more taxes than PRESIDENT Trump pays!!!!

President Trump should be pounding the amount, not the rate.
I don't give a damn what the rate is, I care how much cash is available to pay the bills.
He should be posting how much he paid in local taxes, permits, licenses, fee's etc etc
which is more than all the whiners earn in their entire lifetime!!!
How much do the POS leeches think all his property taxes are!!!
They sure and hell aren't a buck per building!!!

The successful people are paying their fair share, they also didn't get where they are by being stupid!!!
The POS liberals want all these wealthy CONSERVATIVES to pay for every thing, so they don't have to pay their fair share.
I have not seen bill gates, warren buffett or a single so-called movie star sending in an extra check
more than their absolute minimum tax required according to their room full of accountants determined!!!!

I want the smallest government, I want the smallest taxes,
I want the smallest corruption committed by the politicians with our hard earned dough.

Is the TDS so prolific that the democrats are willing to use valuable resources to fight for obtaining his tax filings? They don't have any other more pressing issues? How is this going to help redistribute the wealth from the middle class to the poor?

Bloomberg says he's out apparently. Good, no one wants to have government control the size of their sodas or their guns.
