Tax day is coming up. Cranks will turn out and complain about having to pay any taxes as all, as if anything could get done without taxes. They’ll remind us that Americans are the highest taxed people in the industrial world–though in fact we pay the least in taxes in the industrialized world. All this despite the fact that most people get money BACK from the government.
Meanwhile, Trump, who won’t show us his old taxes because has a golden opportunity to come clean now and show us this year’s taxes before the IRS gets a chance to audit them. He could use a dose of credibility, considering his low approval numbers and high “embarrassment” numbers. But he won’t. What will be his excuse?
Why should he bother making an excuse? He won the election, remember? That covers all shortcomings.
But every time he announces he won’t be showing us his taxes just makes everyone more confident he’s got something to hide.
How embarrassing–for us.
