The worst part of the Trump tax story is what it doesn’t to the favorite meme of the left.
We are constantly told that the rich need to pay “Their fair share” in taxes and Democrats constantly use that line to justify all kinds of tax increases that affect the rich and middle class alike.
With that 35 Million figure it’s going to be pretty hard for the left to argue that President Trump doesn’t pay his fair share particularly since that figure doesn’t count state taxes, local taxes, payroll taxes, property taxes, excise taxes, sales taxes, personal property taxes and any of the assorted fees that he might be required to pay.
So the question on the table for Rachel Maddow and the left:
How much of someone else’s money do you have to take from someone before they’ve paid “their fair share”?
Take your time.
If the left considers it legit to leak Trump’s taxes illegally does that mean it’s open season on anyone they consider the enemy?
Will reporters start complaining when their tax returns start leaking?
