    We would like to see all of Congress business doings, as it is a wonder how all these Congress people are multi millionaires in a short time while they are supposed to be working on their jobs, wouldn’t that be double dipping? How many were inside trading?

      New Angle on 2nd Amendment 🇺🇸 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ “GUN CONTROL “( IS )” PATRIOTISM 😲??? ⭐️⭐️⭐️  HOW😲??? 80% of ALL Guns are Owned By CONSERVATIVE PATRIOTS  Soooooo..... “ ANY & ALL” GUN CONTROL prevents Communist & insurgents from “arming themselves” Conservative PATRIOTS have always had GUNS IN AMERICA ! 🇺🇸😱
      Who is GUN Control marketed to & through? Communist Liberals & Leftist! Who then is it for? Directed toward & at? Communist Liberals & Leftist...
      So let’s compromise and allow for removal of all guns from all illegal immigrants and anyone housing or providing work to undocumented immigrants as well as anyone who knowingly supports communist agendas or insurrection....
      Isn’t that the leftist base! So yeah let’s just let them turn in all there guns.... less guns = safer streets right (their logic) and the left is the violent Antifa militants sponsor so yeah bring your guns to local Republicans and we will take care of everything for the left-overs....

        Someone who is smart didnt pay taxes (legally), creates jobs for ordinaries and isn't dependent on the taxes others pay? Sounds unconscionable and racist etc

          Donald Trump has paid a huge amount of taxes over his life. As a real estate developer his companies are entitled to depreciate the real estate holdings over their economic life. In certain years Trump and his companies may not pay very much in tax due to losses carried forward and a large amount of depreciation and expense. In other years, profits and capital gains will require Trump write a sizable check to the IRS. You can count on Trump having the best tax experts one can buy and you can count on his companies paying every cent they are liable for.

            We should be talking about how the federal reserve is basically empty and we should talk about how fractional reserve banking has screwed over our economy and is an illegal ponzi scheme .

                Kennedy says higher ed is great in the U.S. I'd say academia has a terrible problem that's a downright existential threat. The indoctrination of students into a leftist anti American ideology like Marxism, intersectionality and a host of other illiberal topics make the modern university a joke.

                    @Michael Brogan - well in any case Trumps tax returns have been audited ( gone thru with a fine tooth comb ) by the IRS for many years, I don't know how many in congress can say the same, especially those who get elected at a salary of 170k a year and now are millionaires

                    they all show theirs to a committee, not to you, dumbfuck! but they all show them if asked to do so to clear up any conflicts that may arise! If there was a request for a return it would be given or ordered to be given and that would be the end of it!

                  i think we shouldn't embolden the irs to go after anyone with the rampant spending that the government has. Kind of sad that we are electing folks to conspire in ways to take "our" money" without accountability of the expenditure of said money. if they take "billions and billions " of tariffs, this money should go straight to pay off our debt to the fed. Not pocket it. and disperse it elsewhere . the interest from said debt keeps rising .

                    First of all, I don't believe that there is a problem with Trumps tax return, I think he is trolling them. In the end they will push it to the point, where Trumps return and all of there returns will be looked at. A lot of them have plenty to hide. Trump is allowed personal privacy, they would put it out on MSM, so the media could have a field day, not even understanding half of it and not understanding the business world. Did you ever notice that all of the write offs are for big business.?

                      Trump said he didn't pay taxes and there are rules and regulations that corporation used, that he used as part of being competitive, those laws, regulations, and rules that he and every corporations use should be changed because he followed the rules and paid no taxes, every business owner knows it is staying within budget until tax time when you use the money your company saved from the last tax time on the big ticket items such as equipment, a service/repair remodel, etc. So that is a "reinvestment" instead of "profit," These politicians have no grasp of business, and lets face it folks, they have onl been successful at giving themselves raised, and more bonus, Meanwhile instead of raises for Social Security, and medicare, that should be half the taxes brought in then the "growing number of departments" that is pay to play, you state and federal government workers know them the ones riding the clock that doesn't get anything done because hlf the time they are fixing a problem they caused, or messing with the rights of another worker. We have to many Departments for their growing family time to cut of that federal tit the milk has gone dry,

                          Isn't it ironic how the Demms are making such a big deal about our Presidents taxes and care nothing about the how the two leaders of the Democrat party. Pelosi has a net worth over One Hundred Million dollars. Shuemmer is worth over Two Hundred Million. Not one Democrat cares to know how they made their fortune or have they paid their taxes on the money they have made. I find it interesting how two people that have been in Congress for a combined 70 years and never had another job have managed to amass such a small fortune.

                                          When candidate Trump said he didn't pay much tax, I understood at the time that he was criticising the tax system and saying he was smart to use the existing laws to minimise his taxes. Just as we all do. I never understood him to mean he didn't pay tax he was required to pay. Perhaps if Congress wants to see the tax returns of one elected representative, i.e. POTUS, then they should pass a law requiring all elected representatives to submit their tax returns to congress for examination to ensure they are all honest about their sources of income and payment of required taxes. I do not understand how elected representatives manage to become millionaires while serving their countries. They must have great investment portfolios.

                                                    I respectfully disagree. Brainwashing is a negative term because it is used negatively to manipulate. However the techniques have been used in modern psychology for decades. The self help revolution in the eighties was largely centered around brain washing techniques. Afirmations and visualization have been been used in sports training and corporate sales training for over 30 years. These are also a form of brain washing. The difference is this type of brainwashing is positive. You. should check out Bruce Liptom. He is on the cutting edge of pshychology and what he is doing is amazing with changing gene and energy patterns.
                                                    When the allies took Berlin they discovered Hitler's institute for propaganda. This is now in England and is run with the assistance of our CIA. One premise of brain washing is repetition. Repetition combine with visualization and affirmations can change the way you think which in turn will change your life."Always move forward!"

                                                    @Vegan Hannibal Lecter Now that I am not brainwashed by CNN any longer. I know now. It is easy to see through the Democrat craziness. I look at it now and wonder why so many people can not see what I see now. There is only one answer that makes any sense. The liberal media is using brainwashing techniques to make the population vote for them. That has got to be it because their polocies suck!!

                                                    When you become embarrassed to tell people you are a Democrat and you no longer want to support the criminal party it is time to get off of the Democrat sinking ship. Walk away from CNN!!! The brainwash media ring leader!!!

The fact is their taxes like Trump's has no place being passed around like a bag of potato chips, they act like the IRS is incompetent in the only field that branch handles, taxes! The directors and executives inside the IRS know the tax laws far better than any congressmen, or senator. Average Americans know there are loopholes that these corporations, millionaires, and billionaires exploit it's not a new development. If congress believes the IRS is so incompetent maybe they should have the IRS dissolved and start over.

It's been made clear in congressional hearings that the taxpayer community should not be discouraged in any way from making the type of contributions they have been making (which fuels the delay of the crash of our economic system) but essentially that translates to "Just let people pay what they are gonna pay and don't throw people in jail and scare them from filing at all." As a member of the taxpaying community, I think American patriots have a right to withhold their tax dollars if senior members of the enforcement community make moves to weaponize the tax system. Tax is something you pay if you can afford it which is why only a small percentage of Americans actually pay their taxes and most of the tax payers do love their country.

Trumps trade war has cost taxpayers Billions and does NOTHING! to stop intellectual theft. It has hurt farmers so much, that many stopped farming and the Fact that Trumps own family (Kushner and Ivanka) and Trumps Transportation Sec., Chao are making private deals with China, shows that Trump is lying to you. China hasn't really been effected and only shifted to buy from other countries, causing the USA to lose markets.

McConnell sitting front and center) (Chao and McConnells ties to China) ( Kushner set to make $400 Million from Private China deal) ( Kushner and Ivanka promise Chinese investors Visa's to USA, if they invest in Kushner businesses) ( Ivanka makes multi million dollar deal with China) ( Farmers quit)

This tax reform increases liquidity on main street for households and productive businesses. Lower taxes raise net wages, net profits and enables lower priced goods, services and exports.

                                                                            Apportion these tax revenues to local governments and legislate appropriations upwardly to state and federal governments so local constituencies, through their locally elected representatives, have more of a say how their tax dollars are spent. Enable your local politicians to reduce property taxes, reduce education taxes and reduce reliance on politically conditional state and federal funding. Encourage growth of business and jobs in your local community, address concerns of lost revenues from tax havens[6,7] and save $800 billion per year in tax processing overhead costs with this tax reform. Consider also transitioning public pensions from defined benefit plans with 7.5% ROI to defined contribution plans with risk-free to market-rate ROI to remove the taxpayer guarantee risk. Finally, consider setting up a sinking fund to reduce government debt to a manageable level and right-sizing Guns[8] & butter[9]* spending.

                                                                            * Note that OASDI/Medicare Insurance is separately funded by FICA 15.4% premium payroll withholding (current $132K cap) and the actuarial risk is spread widely across the country, i.e. not included in [9]. Rates and caps may be adjusted to sustain the fund. Have a referendum if you think people don't want old age income, disability and medical insurance, now and in the future.
