Pass the Presidential Tax Transparency Act!
Donald Trump’s choices for his Cabinet speak volumes for how he will lead.
Consider our new head of the Department of Health and Human Services, Tom Price, who has habitually invested in companies that he can personally profit from with his legislative activity.
Apparently, Trump doesn’t see a problem with corporate special interest billionaires – and who knows how far he’ll go to personally benefit from holding office because we still haven’t seen his tax returns.
We need to ensure that our President is acting in the best interest of the public, not just himself. It’s critical that we pass the Presidential Tax Transparency Act. Sign the petition to require Trump to release his tax returns!
For the last 40 years, presidential nominees of both major parties have released their tax returns to assure the public that, if elected, there will be no conflicts of interest.
Trump’s unprecedented move to hide his tax returns raises red flags about benefits he might personally receive from tax plans, executive actions, and new bills. And, without Trump’s tax returns, we’re completely unaware of potential financial interests in Russia and other foreign countries.
The Presidential Tax Transparency Act will require all sitting presidents and major party nominees for president to release the last three years of their tax returns. It’s the bare minimum for transparency from the highest office in our country.
I’m fighting to bring transparency back to the White House at every turn. Let’s start with Donald Trump’s tax returns.
