    Please start the list of names of people who made a fortune because they went into politics. Not that they had it before or after but because of their political endeavors. Remember these people are criminal and need to be called out publicly if not held accountable. I will start with two. VICE President Egor oops! I mean Al-Gore. Second Obama-nation. Your turn! You can even choose corrupt Republicans too! GO!!!!

    Then why are you opposed to people making money?

    Where does it say that they are not allowed to get rich?

    Harry reid. Multimillionaire from a salary of 200,00 per year. Pretty amazing job. maxine waters, same, pelousi has made over 100 million from her time as a congress critter, The list is long, and populated by politicians from both sides of the aisle. Trump is the ONLY one who has lost money by becoming a politician.

    How much does the Trump family have to gain from tax bills?

    Still, the New York Times analysis found that Trump’s taxes could be cut by more than $1.1 billion. The elimination of the alternative minimum tax and the lowering of the pass-through tax rate for certain types of business income -- minus tax increases from eliminating many existing deductions -- would leave Trump $42 million better off. (The alternative minimum tax requires that taxpayers with many deductions pay at least a minimum amount of taxes.)

    But the biggest benefit would come from changes to the estate tax — $1.1 billion more for Trump — under a full elimination.

    The NBC analysis undertaken by Maury Cartine, the partner in charge of tax and business services in the New York City office of the Marcum Group, found net savings of $22.5 million for Trump, primarily from eliminating the alternative minimum tax, plus $1.1 billion from shelving the estate tax.
