I’ve never had the slightest desire to see President Trump’s tax returns.
I also don’t think his tax returns are any of our business!
They are personal, private, and irrelevant.
But lefties have been repeatedly pressing for them and attempting to make this an “issue.”
Again, it’s none of our business…and I don’t care.
New jersey lawmakers have passed a bill to force our President to allow commie-dems to sort through his tax returns, but even if it’s signed into law it would surely fail in any court. Of course, that didn’t stop the libbies from wasting their constituents time and money on some low-grade political theater…
New Jersey Democrats are reviving a controversial effort to force President Donald Trump to release his tax returns or be denied a spot on the state’s 2020 ballot.
The state Senate on Thursday approved a bill — which the Legislature passed once before, in 2017, but which then-Gov. Chris Christie blocked by issuing a scathing veto — that would prohibit candidates for president and vice president from appearing on the ballot unless they make their tax returns public.
Similar legislation has been introduced in at least 30 states but never enacted, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, meaning New Jersey would be the first to impose such a disclosure requirement if its measure is also approved by the Assembly and signed by Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat.
A spokeswoman for Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, D-Middlesex, said the speaker would consult with his caucus about holding votes on the bill. Murphy’s office declined to comment when asked about the governor’s position on the measure.
New Jersey’s bill and the others like it, introduced in most cases by Democratic lawmakers angered by Trump’s refusal to disclose information about his personal finances, have touched off a heated national debate over the constitutionality and appropriateness of such a law.
Let me interject here that he has NEVER refused to disclose his returns. He has plainly stated that HE WOULD DISCLOSE them, after they are no longer under audit, and his attorneys advise him that it’s OK to do so.
The phrase above, “Trump’s refusal to disclose information about his personal finances,” as well as there being a “heated national debate” over his returns, is FAKE NEWS… Frank.
Supporters say states have room under the U.S. Constitution to create ballot access requirements and argue that voters should be able to review candidates’ tax returns in deciding whom to send to the White House.
“It is so obvious with this president that had voters known some of what seem to be his business interests, he may not have been elected president,” said state Sen. Loretta Weinberg, D-Bergen, a sponsor of the bill.
Again, I must interrupt to ask what the hell Democrat Sen. Loretta Weinberg is talking about.
How is it “obvious?”
If she has no idea what the information is, how can she be sure it’s negative? There is NO POSSIBILITY that this libbie chick could know what the information is, or how it could have impacted our votes… Frank.
But critics say such a measure would be struck down by the courts and could lead to more demands on candidates in the future.
