      *The Republican Tax Strategy:* Speed, Subterfuge, and Diversion

      To get their tax plan through this final legislative stretch, the Republicans will try to rely on speed, subterfuge, and diversion. *Mitch McConnell and Ryan have read the opinion polls.* *They know that there is widespread opposition to their plan’s major elements, such as its big tax cuts for corporations, unincorporated businesses, and rich people (like the President), or its new limits on popular deductions for mortgage interest and state and local taxes.* *That explains why the Republicans didn’t hold any hearings in the House, and why they are adopting similar blitzkrieg tactics in the Senate.* 

      *The G.O.P.’s strategy is to rush this thing through before the other side has time to organize a defense.*

      *In the days of yore, whenever a major legislative proposal was put forward, each chamber would spend a good deal of time discussing and dissecting it. Hearings would be scheduled; experts would be summoned. For example, in 2009, the Affordable Care Act took nearly five months to reach an initial vote in the House.* *But Ryan and Kevin Brady, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, only introduced their tax bill, which is more than four hundred pages long,* on November 2nd—all of two weeks ago. The chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Orrin Hatch, released his version, which is equally long and complicated, just a week ago. This pace is more akin to downhill skiing than to traditional legislating.

    • Sonofspam64 lol so true and the trumpet are ok with that as long it’s not Democrat’s wining

  3. Yes, folks, this is a prime example of a man who has nothing to hide! LOL!

    • @John Sorg I think Brian Gardner has chosen the “see no evil, hear no evil” mantra! I mean he voted for a saint: his world would be crumbling down if his dear beloved leader is anything but a saint. LOL! His dear leader, during his campaign for the presidency, did promise that he would reveal his tax returns to the public, for transparency sake. Obviously, that was a lie! LOL. Brian seems to have forgotten a lot of things when it comes to his beloved leader! LOL!

    • @brian gardner So you believe we should not carefully vet public servants?

    • brian gardner Hillary and Obama showed their taxes. Coward bone spurs is afraid.

    • brian gardner so every president in history released their taxes, but we wanna start “privacy rights” with trump? Lol yikes

    • Chris Tams trump, more transparent than the invisible man

  4. I don’t understand why he just doesn’t let them see his tax returns? If he did nothing wrong he has nothing to hide.

    • @brian gardner says the fool

    • Trump is claiming Putin as one of his dependents on the tax returns.

    • Trust me nothing wrong is a under statement .He will go to the highest court, because when he is out of office all his tax crimes will come out. His families over 40 years Russian connections will also come out.

    • @dave474c at least not willingly which is another testament to his low character given the point of releasing them came about due Nixon

  5. NO ONE FIGHTS This Hard & has NOTHING to hide Logically

    • @G Fisher false flag, buddy

    • johnny walker ”Avoiding” tax and ”evading” tax are different things. However, I mever said it was illegal for him to avoid tax, just that evading taxes is not really what the public is interested in. It’s his debt, assets and income.

    • We might find out who bailed him out during his last bankruptcy.

    • Josh Merrel you think he has the IRS in his pocket? I mean I would hope you find that he paid as little tases as he could pay. That’s what a smart person would do. If the IRS could ring a few more bucks out of him I’m sure they would/will. I just don’t get how people will keep insisting on searching for evidence without a crime. It’s the carriage before the horse. I believe with the scrutiny he has undergone from EVERYONE in media, government and wherever he may be the most investigated person in the history of the world. I guarantee that not many politicians would hold up to what he has been through better. I believe there are a lot of sickos who wish this wonderful country Ill will so they can blame president trump. He ain’t smooth, but I’m tired of slick politicians running the country into the ground. (Like Gavin newsom)

    • @Tim Morse *Circular argument since DOJ policy says president can’t be convicted of a crime,yet as a citizen he is guilty of campaign finance fraud by the South District of NY and his campaign manager is in prison for laundered money. In that respect the horse is before the carriage but can’t be attached until impeached or voted out!*

  6. All innocent people file lawsuits to keep the law from looking at their tax documents. Right?

  7. M-O-N-E-Y L-A-U-N-D-E-R-I-N-G !!!

  8. It’s not surprising that Trump is keeping his record of losing court cases intact. He really is a huge loser.

  9. Eventually all of Trump’s crimes will cascade down on him like an avalanche.

    • @brian gardner Whaaa??? He brags about his crimes publically and brags about how he can get away with anything. His crimes are transparent and obvious every time he opens his twitter account or his mouth.

      We don’t need the media. We just read what he writes and listen to what he says. We don’t need translation.

      He is over the top corrupt.

    • @brian gardner Trump has violated his oath of office. He has violated the Emoluments Clause and has attempted bribery, both are in the Constitution as impeachable offenses. Moreover, he has obstructed justice and colluded with foreign powers. He is the poster child for impeachment. Further, his list of crimes is much, much longer and although not impeachable will certainly catch up with him; think income tax evasion and failure to pay due taxes. Crooked through and through, that’s Trump. By the way, what planet have you been living on!?

    • @James Dunn All of those accusations are made up out of whole cloth, liberal imaginations to placate your anger and unjust hatred. Delusions

    • brian gardner are you working at one of the Indian or Russian Trump spam centers?

  10. Trump is so transparent I can’t see him as president anymore

  11. For someone that’s soooo innocent, he sure does wanna keep his finances hidden.

    • M Loftus He hasn’t ever condemned Russia huh? Might wanna go and look that up buttercup. he DID say they TRIED to interfere. Also he has done more to HURT Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton combined. But hey, maybe he should just get a plastic reset button and it’ll all be OK right? Or maybe just say he’ll be MORE flexible after the election. That’s what REAL LEADERS do huh?

    • @Don Williams 2016 called. It wants it’s talking points back.

      @Siobhan M 🤣🤣🤣 five stars. Top notch answer. 😂

    • Don Williams Hillary and Obama showed their taxes. Individual number one is a multiple felon.

    Why do you think he made Florida his home state all of a sudden? Like a criminal running to a non-extradition country.

  13. His tax returns will be good advertising for KFC.

  14. It used to be the White House, but now it’s filled with evil clowns.

    If he was actually not guilty, he would not fight so hard to keep things private

      I’m not saying you’re right or wrong. I will say, there are very good reasons why tax returns are so difficult to get a hold of by anyone outside of the IRS. I won’t pretend to know what they are, but I’m sure they are very good.

      I also think that there are better things to investigate other than a number that tells people how much you’ve reported on your earnings.

      1. By Democrats pursuing tax returns, they are establishing that Trump wouldn’t lie on his tax returns.
      2. If Democrats get their requested tax returns from Trump, and if nothing comes up that they were looking for, they just further make themselves look bad.

      Again, I think there are better ways of going about this thing that’s going to just waste time in Congress. There are better ways to be spending your, and my tax dollars.

      @Anonymous Larry tax returns are money trails, and money trails are hella useful to investigations.

    • Anonymous Larry | November 4, 2019 at 2:30 PM | Reply

      @Sapphire Riddles Of course they are. I’m not saying they’re not. But there are better ways to go about this. If Trump shows his returns, he is just going to open himself up to more interpretation. Again, there are better ways to go about doing this, but the Democrats are not considering other options. It’s just making them look bad.

    The world may finally see that the Trump Empire is little more than a house of cards full of smoking mirrors.
    All that glitters is not gold.

      Trump needs to win the election or he is going to have some big problems as he has made some enemies. The moment he leaves office and his lackeys are replaced in the DOJ he’ll go under a microscope. The only way to shut this clown up after he’s gone will be to put him in a jail cell.

    • william obrien I bet you finally have him now! “The walls are closing in”. “Trump is going down”. Bahahahaha

      You just described the USA, a house of cards.


    • Matt Super where are u getting this info I like to know because I see it other way around

    • According to some joker ….

    • @Matt Super you do know, that policies were out in place during the Obama administration that started turning around the economy. Trump didn’t save anything. He’s riding on the coat tails of success and taking full credit. Before you make a stupid claim, look at the raw data yourself and see when the economy started to improve. Then make note making such a change isn’t something that happens overnight. I do have to say though that in most ways, Trump did do a good thing – by keeping a good thing going (mostly). What he failed at horribly, is telling people he was going to bring back their jobs. Lies. Screwed over farmers, miners, the general public, and foreign relationships with our allies. He justified the loss of thousands of jobs, to create several hundred. And the moron can’t publicly condem Nazis or election interfercance without hesitation? His skin crawled reading that script(IRT Nazis), and even then couldn’t keep to it. That last fact alone says much about you as a person and your character, if you want to identify this pubiclly racist turd as the greatest president ever of the Free World, or even a half decent. He doesn’t give two craps about you. Just his wallet, and grabbing kitty.

      Matt Super go read some economic charts. This trend was started 10 yrs ago and has been steady. Trump takes the credit and yall fall for it every time lol

  18. The most transparent President in history ladies and gentlemen.

  19. “I’ll show my taxes when the audit is over.”

    *sues to keep taxes from being released*

  20. He’s a phony businessman just like his base are phony Christians and Patriots.
