House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced legislation on Friday that would require the president and vice president and candidates for the presidency and vice presidency to release their tax returns.
The bill, however, would not require members of Congress or candidates for Congress to release their tax returns.
The provision is part of H.R. 1the For the People Actwhich Pelosi introduced Friday. A summary of the bill says that it includes a section titled Presidential Tax Transparency. [ ]
In 2017, when members of Congress were calling on President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, Roll Call asked all 535 members of the House and Senate to release theirs. As Roll Call reported at the time, 6 members did release their tax returns as requested by the publication. Another 6 had already released theirs elsewhere. Another 45 members, Roll Call reported, had previously and partially released their tax returns. But 473 members had not released their tax returns and did not respond to Roll Calls request that they do so.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi was one of the members, Roll Call reported, who had not released her tax returns.

More symbolic garbage from a Party bankrupt of meaningful ideas.
The Constitution sets the criteria to be eligible for POTUS. Releasing tax returns is not one of them.
I think a poll might turn up a spectrum of opinion on the advanced hypothesis.
How about everyone inline for President ,that would include you Nancy
Release everyones taxes in congress and their investments especially. Lets see who they are associated with and how they steal their monies!!!!
Yes. I would like to see how a Congress person goes into office broke and comes out a multi millionaire.
Nancy Pelosi tripped over her sagging face skin and swallowed herself.
To listen to the D-(lusionals)s whining, you would think it’s already a requirement. But certainly PDJT will sign that. Right?
VETO - Not needed, doubt if it would pass in the house, and if so would never get past the Senate.
It is unconstitutional to pass a law directed at one individual. It is also unconstitutional for a law to be retro active. So even if such a law could be passed it would not affect President Trump, only future Presidents.
Now do the Democrats really want such a law on the books? Would Hillary?
No this is rhetoric for her base and nothing more.
Everyone of you or nothing B***H!
Must be nice to have the MSM so much on your side you can propose such one sided legislation and not get called om it.
>The Constitution sets the criteria to be eligible for POTUS. Releasing tax returns is not one of them.
Exactly. Further more they want tax returns from when he was a private citizen. Don’t think congressional oversight reaches to private citizens.
Nancy Pelosi, the b*tch who was caught trading on insider info after which they passed the Stock act of 2012 to make it look like she stopped when you damn well know she didn’t
The Dems plan to do nothing but attack Trump so they can remove him or control him ,LOL
The public has an interest in knowing what companies/industries these people in congress have a position in. They seem to get pretty rich after just a few years in the swamp.
The democrats are just playing childish games. They have no interest in improving the country. They want the worst for America and they want us all to suffer. They hate Trump. That is their guiding principle.
Good for thee BUT not for me, what ASSHATS their tax returns are NOT to be exposed BUT DEMAND that Trumps be exposed!!!! The utter balls of these BASTARDS and BITCHES!!!!
