For years, Democrats have been going to great lengths to get Donald Trump’s tax returns. For some reason, they were convinced this would expose Trump. They seem to forget that most of the super-rich, including many Democrats, use the same loopholes to avoid paying taxes. But after fighting and lying and suing, they got his taxes and released them to the public.
From Fox News:
The House Ways and Means Committee released a partially redacted version of former President Trump’s tax returns Friday, completing a longtime objective of Democrats to make Trump’s finances public after the former president unsuccessfully tried to stop them in court.
Obviously, Democrats found nothing in Trump’s tax returns that suggest he broke the law. Despite Democrats demanding his taxes to prove he did break the law. So, the left resorted to just releasing the tax documents, thinking this would hurt Trump in his 2024 bid. But if there was anything actually illegal in those records, they would have prosecuted him–not released them.
Americans aren’t too happy Democrats wasted so many years, for nothing. It appears many are outraged that they released this sensitive, financial information to the public. And they are fighting back.
From The Washington Examiner:
Asked in a new Rasmussen Reports survey if the incoming GOP House majority should release the taxes of Democrats who voted to reveal Trump’s taxes, 54% said yes.
And it wasn’t just Republicans, 63%, and independents, 53%, but included more Democrats than not. Rasmussen said that 45% of Democrats wanted the taxes of the Trump critics released to 38% who didn’t.
Wow. Americans are not happy that Democrats released Trump’s private financial records to the public. According to a Rasmussen poll, 54% of Americans said the GOP should release the tax records of the Democrats who exposed Donald Trump.
That included a majority of Republicans and independents as well as a whopping 45% of Democrat voters.
Releasing tax records would reveal how these rich politicians avoid paying taxes. The super-rich on the left use many loopholes and tricks to get out of paying their “fair share.” That includes Joe Biden and his wife, who funneled money through organizations to avoid paying income tax.
Democrats want us to believe it is only Donald Trump who uses these legal means of avoiding paying taxes. But every single Democrat in D.C. does the same. None of them pay more money to the government if they could help it. Why would they?
So, does that mean they are hypocrites for attacking Trump over something they do? Yup.
- House Democrats released Trump’s tax returns to the public.
- A new poll shows 54% of voters want Republicans to release Democrats’ tax returns.
- Democrats wasted years suing Trump to get his tax returns but found nothing criminal.
