At this point in time ... what difference does it really make?? Seriously. There are more important issues than Trump's tax return.  Border wall, Bammycare, budget, Muslim refugees, Syria, N. Korea, Russia, China, Middle East, and people are obsessed with his tax returns. Amazing!

The Dem's and the MSM are obsessed.  Trump calls himself a republican now so the IRS will be looking it over for many months.   :lol:

The left hasn't really thought this out. Trump has been audited for years. Government has never been more politicized and the amount of leaking has increased. If Trump ever cheated on his taxes or did business with terrorists or enemies of the the US the IRS would have gone after him years ago or it would have been leaked during the campaign.

Nope, the only thing that matters is Trump's tax returns, Russia, and tearing down every conservative voice in the media.  :rolleyes:

I think Trump just likes sticking it to the LSM and Dims over this. It's also a nice distraction. Whenever the Dims get on a topic that's important, Trump can just leak one of his old tax returns ... say, from 2015.  :rolleyes:

I would like to know how many pages his return is!

Yeah - it would be humorous if he started dangling information from his returns to the LSM and Dims. The page count of last years return in exchange for letting the Immigration EO stand. Maybe make a trade with the Dims, say, a 2016 return in exchange for their support of the border wall.

It is all the left has. They cannot say what they are actually for.

Herd mentalities are fun when there aren't any leaders, or any direction. Millions upon millions of dollars were recently spent on a proved serial liar whom people openly mistrusted and openly mocked (including liberals!)...and she couldn't come up with a believable reason on why she was running at all. But hey, we were talking Trump's returns, and if I am going to weigh in on THAT one....

The bullet list REPORTEDLY issued thus far proposes to remove the death tax for inheritances over a few million dollars, and at least one other tax law that would directly affect how much Trump gets to keep and pass on to his chilluns. I haven't seen any authoritative copy of said bullet-list, just references. Dang. Now I can't even find links to that. More coffee!

I support abolition of the "death tax" 110%. What right does the government have to what one has when taxes have already been paid on those funds? This tax is the ultimate example of redistribution of wealth.

Absolutely agree. How can the government tax something that has already been taxed? Clearly redistribution of wealth - a Marxist law.

Few Americans leave more than $5 million as individuals. This affects those earning more, just as taxes are the ultimate distribution of wealth, and all politics is centers on who spends how much of other people's money. That jive about "necessary evil" is hilarious depending on who defines necessary.
