The next big march!! I support this idea 100 percent. As tax season approaches, more and more Americans are going to become increasingly angry that they are paying taxes while Donald Trump and other wealthy shirkers like him get away with paying nothing.
Frank Lesser, writing at Slate, proposes a way to deal with this — a huge march, on April 15, tax day, of Americans demanding that Trump release his taxes.
“It turns out there are only two certainties in life: death and Donald Trump not releasing his taxes.
“At this point, it’s clear that Trump isn’t going to show us his tax records unless he feels like he has no other choice. And without those tax returns, we won’t have the basic information we need to unravel Trump’s entanglements with foreign governments, to discern whether he used illegal tax shelters, or to figure out if he’s actually as rich as he claims to be.
“To be clear, we don’t want to see his tax returns because we’re the financial equivalent of a lecherous pervert who barges into underage girls’ dressing rooms while they’re changing. We’re not trying to find out how much money he spent taking a married woman furniture-shopping before he “moved on her like a bitch.” We want to show President Trump that, no matter what his advisers may say, the American people do care. We care if our president has unseemly ties to foreign or domestic interests. We care if our president says he’ll do something and then straight up doesn’t do it. That’s why the official White House petition requesting Trump to release his tax returns already has more than 270,000 signatures. Using Trump math, that’s more than 1.75 million. Huge!”
Join the cause and DEMAND THE RELEASE OF HIS TAX RETURNS. (Read Lesser’s piece here.)
