Default YOU ASED FOR ITYOU GOT IT! ...you liberal saps..

For years now, the "Loonie Left" has been whining and setting their hair on fire over Donald Trump's unreleased tax returns. Finally, some low life 'reporter' got their hands upon the papers which had sent the left into convulsions...Trump's tax returns..
Come to find out..the Donald paid a higher percentage than for instance MSNBC Comcast...who divulged the unauthorized information. Not only that, but he paid MUCH HIGHER taxes than many of the chief screamers..to include Bernie and the Obamas !

We should all pay heed to why he paid those high taxes: the alternative minimum tax, which is increasingly applying to people as the law has not been adjusted for inflation. A lot of professional couples are hit with high tax bills because of it.

About the illegal leak of this information, the whitehouse spokesman started his response with.

"You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago. "

Even those I listed who paid less than Trump, paid too much tax. Our government should operate more efficiently than that !

Apparently it is impressive. It has been the top story at NPR since yesterday.


The real story is that the leak was illegal, and the mechanics of that illegal action should become public.

The return info is the first two pages only that shows only the numbers, not by far the more important information of where the income and losses came from. Complete returns for the last seven years would be much more relevant or at least a complete 2014 0r 15 return.

My brother worked for 12 years at a medium salary as an insurance Exec, and then he finally had one really great year of stock options, bonuses, dividends and interest.

He had pre-estimated his taxes and mailed them in quarterly, using the standard provisions and tax table. In doing this, he had sent in about $65,000 in taxes, and thought he was done.

He was sick to hear from his accountant that the Alternative Minimum Tax applied to him that year, and he owed another $20,000 or so.

He was struggling to put his three kids through college at a state university, and this was really devastating news.

The AMT in its current form is a travesty and needs to be abolished. Trump is considering it.

I find it somewhat amusing that the left is so interested in Trump's tax returns. What do they think they will find? It seems logical they will find he made a lot of money, had a lot of write-offs, and paid what the IRS deemed he owed to the government in taxes!

I believe him when he said he gets audited every year. I would assume that is pretty common for someone with his complicated finances.

And remember when he was demanding Obama release his birth certificate? Tell me honestly you don't think he had extra scrutiny from the IRS when that was going on! Does anyone think the IRS over-looked any mistakes or improprieties on his returns??
