Is This Transparency?

donald trump  President Trump keeps telling the American people he will soon be taking on tax reform.  I guess if President Trump gets tired of moving the pegs around on his Battleship game, if he gets bored Tweeting to the crazy kid in North Korea, if he decides to take on the Democrats and real issues facing the American economy, then I guess he might find time to reform the tax code as he promised during the election.

Now of course his record with dealing with real issues is not very good. Of course some might point to is ever-growing number of executive orders as accomplishments. But he has failed twice in trying to pass his Muslim ban, and his attempt at overhauling health care is one for the ages when it comes to political fails.

So what can we expect in the way of tax reform?

But more importantly how will we know the what and why of the reforms proposed by the President?

It is time for all citizens, Democrat, independent voters, and especially Republicans to demand to see the tax returns for Donald Trump. After all, wouldn’t it be nice to know just how much those businesses, he no longer knows anything about, (wink, wink) are benefitting from the reforms the President is calling for.

It is extremely important Republicans call for complete transparency before they begin any reform of the tax code. If the American people do not know all of the facts and potential conflicts, then the people will be suspicious of everything. The people have a right to know if the President’s family businesses will benefit from his proposed reforms.

    It is impossible to enact significant legislative change without 60 Senate seats.

    Most people with even a modicum of political savvy know that.

    Speak for yourself. I couldn’t care less about Trump’s tax returns. And I doubt if anyone who voted for him cares, either.

    Frank, you sound more like Rosie O’Donnell every day. Rosie O’ Knutts.

    So Rick, you don’t care if Trump’s not payin’ his so long as you’re payin’ yours.

    Rick it is the people who voted for him who should be leading the cry for transparency. Unless their only concern is about being embarrassed for being duped.

  4. Rick says:

    Why don’t you two post your tax returns? In the name of blog “transparency.”

    I couldn’t care less about any politicians tax returns. The US Constitution has age and citizenship requirements. I looked and couldn’t find anything regarding tax returns.

    Obama was a trained Marxist, an Alinskyite and a friend of a domestic terrorist. But that’s okay, because he was a “nice guy.”

    Rosie, you’ve done it again. Side with the hate-America left. Totally predicable.

    Rick, asking for my tax returns is a straw man deflection. I am not running for nor do I hold an elected office. My decisions do not affect tax payers money, and cannot make policy which could benefit myself, unlike the POTUS.

    Let’s also dispense with the requirement that many senior govt nominees submit* their tax returns to the Senate before they can be confirmed!

    *Nothing to do with Islam, Rick. Chill.

Got something to say? Go for it!
