Who cares how much a president makes anymore.
That's not really what this is about. Trump likes to brag about how rich he is.
This is about how a president makes what he makes.


What is it about again Phage?




The Legislature also finds and declares that a Presidential candidate’s income tax returns provide voters with essential information regarding the candidate’s potential conflicts of interest, business dealings, financial status, and charitable donations. The information in tax returns therefore helps voters to make a more informed decision.


Don't you think this is just for Trump? Didn't see anyone going after Hillary with her not just potential conflicts of interests but actual ones...

You're joking, right?

But you know that she released her tax returns, correct?

I expect this will affect Democratic candidates that must win California, more than it will affect Republican or other third party candidates that have close to zero chance of winning California ...

Repubs and third parties ... if they do not want to release their taxes ... why would they even run a campaign there?

Californ ia governor vetoes bill that would force Trump to release his tax returns


California’s governor has vetoed a Donald Trump-inspired bill that would have forced presidential contenders to release their tax returns.

Breaking with decades of tradition, Mr Trump refused to release a full accounting of his finances despite running a global business empire that ethics experts say is rife with potential conflicts of interest. Concerns about entanglements between Mr Trump’s business and his official duties have prompted lawsuits.

In California, Democrats sought to prevent a repeat situation by passing a bill that would have required presidential contenders to release their tax returns in order to appear on presidential primary ballots. The measure was embraced by elected politicians and by the state’s top elections official, Secretary of State Alex Padilla.

But Gov Jerry Brown vetoed the measure, warning that it might be unconstitutional - a conclusion also drawn by an official state analysis - and worrying about spurring “an ever escalating set of differing state requirements for presidential candidates”.


Vetoed on constitutional grounds..

Couldn't agree more. We need total transparency for elected officials. They need to be help to a much higher standard.
