It’s been two years since Hillary lost and the Democrats are still whining about Trump’s tax returns.
The Democrats will be introducing legislation to force Presidents and Vice Presidents to provide tax returns.
House Democrats pushed legislation during a hearing Thursday that would require presidents and presidential candidates to release tax returns in order to get President Donald Trump’s tax returns.
“We have been called, we have been chosen to lead at this time in our history …” Democratic Georgia Rep. John Lewis said in opening remarks at the hearing. “We will review whether a president, vice president or any candidate for these offices should be required by law to make their tax returns available to the public. In other words, we will ask the question: Does the public need to know that a person holding the highest office in our country obeys the tax laws?”
Lewis is the chair of the oversight subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee, which held the hearing — its first on the subject of presidential tax returns.
The presidential tax return legislation House Democrats want is part of a 571-page election reform bill, the “For the People Act,” also known as House Resolution 1.
House Democrats have threatened to go to the extreme of seizing Trump’s tax returns after outcry when Trump bucked four decades of precedent by opting not to release his tax returns during his 2016 campaign.
