    Why doesn't he set an example and pay the 30% he's advocating all the other wealthy people pay under the Buffet Rule?

    Then pay it!! What's stopping you Mr. President?? Why don't you walk your talk?

    People really fall for this shit?

    Can you imagine if obama didn’t show you his taxes?

    I think trump not releasing his taxes after the election is a deal breaker too. He lied. That wasn’t a promise he just couldn’t deliver like repealing the aca or building a wall. He chooses to not show his taxes because they show his Russian connections.

    Says something about people who don’t care that he lied

    Humm, that is especially hypocritical because Obama raised the top marginal personal income tax rate from 35% to 39.6% in 2013. Although his salary as president was probably liable for a tax rate of 20.5%, the perks of his office--free travel, free meals, free security, excessive paid time off, etc.--were worth much more. To set a good example, he should have paid taxes on them. After all, he also imposed a salary cap of $600K on top executives whose banks received federal bailouts. He's raking in way more than $600K from speaking fees and book deals alone.

    Holy shit, did you just bring up a thread was posted in 2011?

    As you saw the thread had zero replies, no one cared even back then. And equivalently can you imagine - no one cares about Trump's tax returns now either, outside of CNN's agenda division.

    Trump does not pay taxes ROFL! Someone has been watching CNN.

    Trump provides the biggest tax cut ever to all Americans, and you are bitching that he is a hypocrite for paying (assumably) low taxes?

    ROFL! You just can't make the stupidity of these guys up. It's unreal...

    If obama can set tax rates for all rich people he will gladly pay his fair share. Trump pays nothing and you don’t even care to see if that’s true.

    You love him so who cares what you think

    In five years it goes away for you and me.

    I benefit $2000-$4000 a year from the tax break. $2000 this year but I got a huge raise so it’ll probably be over $3000 next year.

    Is it worth it? No. I’d give it up to get rid of republicans so I’m sure obama would too

    You’re pretty cheap if you can be bought for $2k a year. Is your soul worth it?

    I get it. To most of you $3000 a year is a lot of money
