None of the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates have submitted five years’ worth of their tax returns to the state of California.
If that law would have not been shot down, none of them would have been on the ballot. Actually, nobody would be on the ballot.

How the media missed this is odd but, what is more odd; none of the Democrat candidates are being attacked for not submitting five years of tax returns. They only do that for one candidate.

They are also not attacking any other candidate but one for filing for bankruptcy. Marianne Williamson did, lost a home because of it yet silence. It was on Wiki but looks like they deleted the paragraph about her financial problems and losing a home in foreclosure.

One would think that of all the reporters out there, at least one would point out the hypocrisy of wanting tax returns for only a single candidate and wanting to shame that one candidate for bankruptcy while everyone else gets a pass. Guess not.

you REALLY THINK the democrats want to follow the rules they set for trump or anyone else they dont agree with?

Hell they will throw one of their own under the bus / hold them accountable to same rules ONLY when they fall out of favor.

They all will be releasing their tax returns..

It is too easy of an attack line against trump if they all do, and he still refuses..


Well except for the one page of one year that “was leaked” by trump to make himself look better..


It will be too easy for conservatives to use that against them if they don’t, and the left actually cares if their politicians are blatantly corrupt..


So where not releasing his tax returns helps trump with his supporters, because they don’t want to know how dirty he is.

Not releasing their tax returns will hurt the democrats, because they actually want to know who they are electing.

Want to make a gentlemen’s bet???


Obviously just for bragging rights..


For sure every democrat who makes it close to the final round will release their tax returns..


Because if they did not it would hurt them with their base.



However, trump FOR SURE will still be keeping his a secret and he will pay no price for it..


Because for conservatives they would rather elect a dumpster fire, than realize they are constantly played for yokels.

They all will be releasing their tax returns..

one unless you work for them or talk to all of them your just making an ASSumption. Second if they CHOOSE TO then its their CHOICE... AND

It is too easy of an attack line against trump if they all do, and he still refuses..

Um no it doesnt because its NOT REQURIED BY FEDERAL ELECTION LAW. along with the fact they have used so many silly, false and "aleged" attack lines the idea of "too easy" is laughable...try again

Well except for the one page of one year that “was leaked” by trump to make himself look better..

care to provide PROOF it "was leaked by trump"? oh wait there was none... so just another COMMENT without substance. worked so well in last election didnt it.. not


It will be too easy for conservatives to use that against them if they don’t, and the left actually cares if their politicians are blatantly corrupt..

sigh again WHAT PROOF outside of your personal anti trump rant (and a old overused one at that) of "blatent corruption. Psst for there to be corruption you need PROOF and oh maybe CHARGES FILED IN COURT with a conviction (to counter that innocent until proven guilty in a court of law thing). as for "the left acturally cares if their politicians are blatantly corrupt" .. that is so assinine and easily disproven it is only worthy of mocking laughter


So where not releasing his tax returns helps trump with his supporters, because they don’t want to know how dirty he is.

sigh... again PROOF of how "dirty he is". sorry but your OPINION is not worth a cup of coffee much less PROOF. also as for "trump supporters not caring about his tax returns".. why would anyone. people are more concerned about the economy (doing better than last 8 years), less income taxes , ect. seems only democrats care about it .

Not releasing their tax returns will hurt the democrats, because they actually want to know who they are electing.

your half right... it will hurt the democrats because (as last election showed ) THIS ISSUE IS NOT WHAT VOTERS GIVE A FUDGE ABOUT (except some democrats). they care about the economy, immigration , ect. Maybe if the democrats ran on oh REAL ECONOMIC ISSUES (to name one) instead of "trump bad and any excuse to call him bad" platform.



Look no candidate UNDER FEDERAL LAW has to release his/her tax returns.
it is A CHOICE...a choice that despite all the ranting and raving (like your doing now) NO ONE AS A MAJORITY CARES.
the only thing any presidential (and others) candidates have to file financially is SEC financial statements.
those are long and intensive... funny how you and others cant find any fault with them .
so your answer is to go on a rant about tax returns.
along with its FEDERAL LAW (psst that overrides state law) that tax returns are ILLEGAL TO RELEASE without court order or voluntarily by the person.

but the final PROOF of your silly childish "we want his tax returns" rant is this.
he has been audited MULTIPLE TIMES by the IRS to include the year he was running.
so unless you think the IRS is in his pocket (psst dont try or the FACTS of how they were used during obama time to target conservative groups will make you look foolish) his returns had NOTHING ILLEGAL in them

if you really want the democrats to have a chance at beating trump, stop with the "tax return" platform and maybe go for economic ideas that benefit the voters and they want

naw why do that when your attack tactics (including tax return issue) has worked so well
oh wait

Here's a better question if they all did would Trump release his? I highly doubt it and his supporters would defend his decision.

So what?

which part of its a CHOICE and not required did you miss?

in fact the reason he got his support isnt for his tax returns but what his platform was and in next election what he did

the only people hung up on his "tax returns" is you anti trump and democrats.

let me ask you..

if he did release them (for purposes of discussion) would you and others demanding it ?

bet dollars to donuts the answer would be NO

So if you who are demanding it afterwords wound not vote for him and in FACT try to use it against him...

why in hades would he do it?

common do you think everyone cant see though your spin/ BS?

if you REALLY are hung up on his tax returns there is an alternative right in front of your noses...
its called the SEC FINANCIAL FILLINGS that all presidential candidates have to do and available .

given you all havent found anything in them and given that the IRS (hardly a pro trump supporter) has audited him multiple times INCLUDING AT TIME RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT and found NOTHING ILLEGAL.

if there was there would be at least a known charge and some "anonymous source" leak by now.

give it a rest and oh maybe actually have your candidates present programs that MAJORITY OF VOTERS WANT .

because if most of your platform is "trump bad must get him out" you might as well say you want him elected again

What part of "He's not required to." are you having a problem understanding??

There is no election law--state or federal that requires him to, or anyone to for that matter.

If he does, I don't care. If he doesn't, I don't care. ...and I don't like the man in the slightest. I think he's an ass****, to be perfectly blunt about it.

But neither will I dispute he's done better than I'd ever hoped he'd do. Certainly better than I feared he'd do.

...and that's driving his opponents nuts. They've little to nothing to attack him on, so they'll latch on to whatever they can... An empty Mueller report. Tax returns. Two scoops. Etc...

On the tax returns... Even if he is hiding something, do you honestly believe he's, and his accountants, are so stupid as to put them on paper that's going to the IRS? The IRS that was being used by the Democrats as a weapon against opponents...? Seriously?

Little to attack him on? Come on you guys have to defend his idiotic goof ups two, three times a day. Now he's trying to get us in a war with Iran on behalf of the Saudis, the birthplace of the 9/11 hijackers and Osama bin laden. Go figure. #cult45 #stockholmsyndrome

I thought the reason Uber patriot captain bone spurs wouldn't release his taxes was because he was in the middle of an audit?

instead of again attempting to debate and counter (like an adult) you double down on childish canned comment.

along with he was under audit so that part was true also.
but after what rational person would then release it to be cannon fodder for more untruthful attack ads

but instead of countering like you do let me ask you a serious question

IF he did release them would you or any of those demanding it then vote for him?
bet not and also reasonable to presume you all try to use it against him

so by what logic would ANYONE willingly give their enemies more personal information ?

sigh

Maybe it should be law. If you're running for public office and want to be a public servant you should be required to make your financials public as well. That goes for Republican or Democrat.

Not sure how much it would help to bring corruption to light but it's a start. Or we could just take a politician's word that they aren't being bought and paid for, after all politicians are extremely trustworthy, right?

We don't care if Trump does, or if the Dems do. That's called consistency.

Dems care that Trump doesn't, don't care if Dems do. That's called your average hypocrite Democrat.

Classic Democrats making rules for everyone and not following it themselves.
