S. 26 - The Presidential Tax Transparency Act
This bill amends the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 to require the President and certain candidates for President to disclose federal income tax returns for the three most recent taxable years in reports filed with either the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) or the Federal Election Commission (FEC), in the case of a candidate.
The OGE or the FEC must make the disclosed tax returns publicly available after making appropriate redactions. If the income tax returns are not disclosed as required by this bill, the OGE or the FEC must request the returns from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
The bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to require the IRS, upon receiving a written request from the FEC or the OGE, to provide any income tax return that is required to be disclosed under this bill.
The bill also establishes civil and criminal penalties for failing to file or falsifying income tax returns that are required to be disclosed pursuant to this bill.
TEXT OF BILL:
January 4, 2017
Mr. Wyden (for himself, Ms. Baldwin, Mr. Bennet, Mr. Cardin, Mrs. Feinstein, Mr. Kaine, Mr. Merkley, Mr. Murphy, Ms. Stabenow, Mr. Udall, and Ms. Warren) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Rules and Administration
MAKING ONE'S TAX RETURN(S) IS NOT REQUIRED OF THE PRESIDENT BY THE CONSTITUTION! YOU FRICKIN' LIBERALS WOULDN'T BE SATISFIED NO MATTER WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP DID, ANYWAY! SO WHAT IF FORMER PRESIDENTS VOLUNTEERED TO RELEASE THEIR TAX RETURNS?! THAT WAS THEIR CHOICE; THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO! YOU DEMOCOMMIES ARE A BUNCH OF FRICKIN' HYPOCRITES! WHY DIDN'T YOU DEMAND MORE "TRANSPARENCY" FROM THAT S.O.B. THAT JUST RECENTLY VACATED THE WHITE HOUSE?! YOU KNOW - THAT TRAITOR WHO SOLD AMERICA OUT TO THE ISLAMIC SUPREMACISTS EVERY CHANCE HE GOT!!! YOU IDOLIZE THAT EVIL P.O.S., BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, WHEN THE WHOLE NATION SHOULD HAVE DEMANDED HE BE STRIPPED OF HIS CITIZENSHIP AND TRIED FOR TREASON!!! (BTW, IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO DO JUST THAT!)
I apologize for the vulgar and disrespectful language in my post. I just get fightin' mad 😡 when I think about the terrible things BHO did to this country! And I am just FLABBERGASTED by the fact that so many people BOUGHT the socialist lies put forward by BHO, HRC, Bernie Sanders (yeah, talk about BS!), the MSM, and all the other delusional leftists "out there"! I think a lot of you are NUTS, quite frankly! You liberals are like the frog that's been put into the pot of water, and the water's being heated so gradually that the poor ignorant frog is COOKED before it realizes it's in DANGER!
Do you value FREEDOM so little?! 'Cause socialism's goal is COMMUNISM! Is that REALLY what you WANT?! If so, go live in Russia! I can tell you right now that there isn't a red-blooded, patriotic, freedom-loving American alive who is going to just sit back and LET you turn this nation into another Communist gulag (OR Islamic caliphate) or third world banana republic! You got that?! That's not a threat; that's a PROMISE! Communism (like Islam) is antithetical to the free Christian nation our founding fathers bequeathed us by the grace of God Almighty! And no one in his/her RIGHT MIND will WILLINGLY trade that for a Communist dictatorship (which BHO tried hard to establish)!
If you want to keep losing seats in Congress and losing gubernatorial races, just keep pushing your socialist/globalist agenda. We will mobilize conservative voters on a scale you can only dream of! We will give you a political lickin' that you will never forget! God will fight on the side of His people against the forces of evil!
