In spite of Hillary Clinton’s health issues, email server scandals, lying to Congress and subsequent FBI cover ups, (the list goes on and on), the number one topic of discussion for mainstream news and daytime talk shows is…Donald Trump’s tax returns.
You heard that right!
The BIG topic to discuss is the fact that Donald Trump didn’t pay any taxes in 1995 because of business losses he incurred during the year. Of course, Hillary isn’t interested in details—just innuendo and false accusations. It doesn’t matter that he did it legally—liberals, as you will see, have a total disregard for the law.
From the Political Insider:
Suddenly, paying taxes is a big thing for Democrats. Well, now that Donald Trump’s 1995 tax return has been revealed by the New York Times, anyway.
Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton blasted the Republican on social media, saying, “Donald Trump might have gone decades without paying taxes—but he’s not afraid of telling other people to pay theirs.”
The Hypocrisy runs deep with the Democrat party because they have a few of their own who have avoided paying taxes and sometimes for very questionable reasons.Here’s a short list of some notable Dems who failed to pay:
Geithner is infamous for his support and handling of the 2008 Wall Street bailouts and for supporting massive tax increases as the Bush Tax Cuts expired.
Geithner failed to pay more than $34,000 in federal taxes.
In the spring of this campaign season, Clinton met in Harlem with Rangel (D-NY) whom she referred to as “my long-time friend, the person I give credit to for starting me on this journey.”
Rangel earned $75,000 in income from a three-bedroom villa that he owned, but he didn’t report any rental income to the IRS, and paid $0 in tax by doing so. At the time Rangel was cheating on his taxes, he also chaired the House Ways and Means Committee – the congressional body that writes the nation’s tax code.
Rangel was censured by his peers, the harshest form of punishment short of expulsion from Congress.
Although not the closest of friends, McCaskill (D-MO) did support Hillary by endorsing her 2016 campaign three years early.
In 2011, McCaskill was forced to sell her private plane and pay back $287,273 for four years of back taxes.
Daschle, the former senator from South Dakota, endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, saying she “has dedicated her life to fighting for the right of every American family to find opportunity, success and security.”
He apparently has a different vision on how to create a path to opportunity and success – not paying taxes.
Daschle was chosen by President Obama to head Health and Human Services in 2008, but had his name withdrawn when it was discovered he had neglected to pay $128,203 in taxes three years prior.
Hillary’s successor and current Secretary of State John Kerry was caught docking his 76-foot yacht in Rhode Island instead of his home state of Massachusetts, thus avoiding the $500,000 or so in excise taxes he’d have to pay by doing so.
To this list we need to add everyone’s favorite race baiting preacher, Al Sharpton who supposedly owes $103,156.06 in one judgement alone! We believe this list could get a lot longer!
If there was an award given for hypocrisy, Hillary would have this year’s top honors. She needs to consider the two by four in her own eye before offering to remove the legal splinter from Trump’s eye. But integrity never has been one of her finer points. Probably the first thing she ever learned was lying convincingly. We need someone to represent us who isn’t a serial liar. We need Trump!
