The Democrats Are Totally Wasting Taxpayer Dollars, As Usual

The Democrats Are Totally Wasting Taxpayer Dollars so nothing new on that front, like starving junkyard dogs wrangling over the only mouthful of meat, these idiots are bound and determined to provoke and destroy a duly elected president for political reasons far beyond the rise of one man…They simply can not accept the socialist goal of one world order under a world socialist regime did not come to pass.

Whether I believe everything Trump says, does, or alludes to, I ABSOLUTELY understand that US citizens avoided the chains of a concentrated takeover of our country by a group of wealthy elite who were to herald in the “glorious” regime of this one world government either through usurption and refinement of one of the most powerful countries in the world or through its utter destruction through financial, constitutional, or other means.

The House Ways and Means Committee met last week and I happened to see practically the only video on the meeting on YouTube.

Background on the committee: The Committee on Ways and Means is the chief tax-writing committee of the United States House of Representatives. Members of the Ways and Means Committee are not allowed to serve on any other House Committee unless they apply for a waiver from their party’s congressional leadership.  It was first established as a select committee on July 24, 1789, then reappointed in 1795. Eight Presidents and eight Vice Presidents have served on Ways and Means, as have 21 Speakers of the House of Representatives, and four Justices of the Supreme Court. It  exercises jurisdiction over revenue and related issues such as tariffs, reciprocal trade agreements, and the bonded debt of the United States also revenue-related aspects of the Social Security system, Medicare, and social services programs.

The IRS was founded in 1862. According to the Tax Return website: Presidents release tax returns only for years they serve in office and only while they still hold that office.

Candidates running for president are not legally obligated to release their taxes, there is a long tradition of doing so, in addition to public financial disclosure laws candidates must follow including a lengthy financial disclosure to the Federal Election Commission.

We all know Trump is not a traditional politician and probably will never be.

It is interesting to note that Gerald Ford did not release his tax returns though he did release a summary. No tax returns were noted on the Tax History site prior to Franklin Roosevelt who did not release tax returns during his presidency from 1913-1937.  Many of his returns were later made available by his presidential library. George Bush released 1989, 1990, 1991 even though he served from 1989-1994. All tax records can be viewed at Tax History.org.

The following video is over an hour long…I don’t advise any (like me) to view more than the first twenty minutes.  I got so angry I had to back away. But in those first twenty minutes is a wealth of information.

Congressman Kind’s little monologue was particularly hypocritical about the 8:30 mark. The Republicans gave as good as they got and thank goodness they did stand up for the president whether they respected his reluctance or not.  I couldn’t help myself but had to comment (of course) on the video comment section.

My first in response to that monologue, “Wow Mr. Kind – great speech BUT where the F’ was that speech since 2009? HYPOCRITE.”

My second to Ms. Sewell at the end of the twenty minutes, “Trump: ‘I will release my tax returns when Clinton releases deleted emails Sept 26, 2016’.  Good Lord these democrats are true definitions of junkyard dogs. However, I think every citizen in the US would be supportive of a law that every elected and nominated official (and include judicial branch) in government SHALL submit complete tax returns for the last three years and it be retroactive to all currently serving in office. Can Democrats stand THAT heat?”

That’s my take on the House Ways and Means Demoooocrat Witch Hunt. Now to go take a cleansing walk.

  2. I got through 26 minutes of this hearing before I turned off the video when Mr. Pascrell stated they could disclose when investigating criminal or terrorist activities, which Mr. Trump has not been accused of committing. It is becoming crystal clear to me that the Democrooks are casting as wide a net as possible to search for criminal activities so that they can further delegitimatize the current administration. This kind of partizan warfare against the current administration must stop! The disclosure of the Presidents tax returns will do nothing but give them more fuel to keep this destructive persecution going and absence of non tax related evidence of wrongdoing this need to end for the good of the country.

      You are a better person than me I stopped at the 20min mark my BP shot up. Exactly right. Here IS a kicker though I haven’t read them…for once an administration is trying for transparency. Apparently Trump put info on the web concerning each of his advisors and their incomes. Politico is of course jumping on it.

    Got some problems with this paragraph: It is interesting to note that Gerald Ford did not release his tax returns though he did release a summary. No tax returns were noted on the Tax History site prior to Franklin Roosevelt who did not release tax returns during his presidency from 1913-1937. Many of his returns were later made available by his presidential library. George Bush released 1989, 1990, 1991 even though he served from 1989-1994. All tax records can be viewed at Tax History.org.

    1. Roosevelt was president from 1933 until 1944 – not 1913-1937. He died in 1945 and Truman took over.
    1A. Income tax returns were filed by nobody before 1913, and that year only people earning more than $20,000.oo. The average income in 1913 was $800.oo.
    2. Bush was president from 1989-1992. Clinton took office in 1993.

    So, my question is this: With one paragraph so far off, what is the veracity of the rest of them?
