Trump said at the first debate that it is good business not to pay taxes, do you agree with him?


At the same time he is talking about the Military shrinking. Maybe he doesn’t know that taxes pay for the Military. Taxes also pay our infrastructure, schools, police…etc.

    So, you're telling me the IRS is letting Trump get away wit NOT paying his taxes?

    I don't think so, not in this election year, with Trump being slandered by every department in the U.S. government.

    If he owed, they'd file charges.

    Yes Scott, but trump does not care who he hurts as long as he is not hurting.

    Here in NJ, we had to cut services our elderly and kids need because we are now paying off the debt Trump's 6 corporate bankruptcies caused.

    For your first sentence John, WE NEED TO DO AWAY WITH THE LOOPHOLES. Make some kind of a flat tax where everyone pays a percentage of what they make.

    Thank you John, it should be that way here. Someone who plans to be President should be ashamed that he expects people who barely make a living to pay taxes he should be paying.

    Thank you John, I wish my fellow Countrymen/women realized if everyone does not contribute to our tax system, everything goes undone nothing get paid and our infrastructure collapses. Hillary's tax return shows that she paid 33% of her income.

    Abraham, Hillary said he did not pay any "Federal Income Tax" and trump said "that makes me smart" his business tax was not mentioned. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l8o97g0QS8, Mr. Carson, do you know income tax evasion is a crime?

    It's not a liberal or conservative issue. If he's not paying then other are footing the bill.

    Bless you Eleanor, I thank you for this information, I appreciate you.

    Wishing trump's worshipers could read this, but I am afraid they would say you made it up. I wish Hillary could read this.

    God Bless you Eleanore

    Joe, thank you for the comment & you are right we should be angry at the law/loopholes. But, that does not mean trump should not be held culpable for gaming the system.

    Trump wants to get rid of the loop holes that the rich use, like he did, so that they do have to pay their fair share. And cut taxes for the middle class and small business. Those are some of the things I think he can dothat Hillary won.t do.

    Mr. frumpleton, thank you for the comment, it is appreciated, however his looks however much they offend your eyesight is not pertinent to my question. I hope that you will write hub(s) instead of just joining to answer questions. Thank you.

    Thank you sunibharat, I agree with you and I am sure there was something illegal in his dealings with his not paying taxes.

    Hillary released her personal income tax return showing she paid 33% of her earned income, trump will not release his, yet you say he did nothing wrong.

    There are more Republicans in office than anything else ms. lynnley.

    Thanks cmoneyspinner, I appreciate your information about Wesley Snipes, as most people who avoid paying Federal Income Tax are in danger of going to prison, unless they make restitution, & we all know that mr. trump is not likely to even admit i

    Norma, thank you for the answer I think trump makes enough money to pay Federal Income Tax, and that is what we are talking about here. I watched the first debate and Hillary said he should release his tax return, that maybe he did not pay any tax.

    CE, that is exactly why we need Trump. Whether he can make a big change or not, at least he might be enough to get it started. With Hillary it will stay the same or get worse.

    Yes, only Democrats set up loopholes. Republicans have always been pure.

    We can't thrive as a country when everyone sees one side as all good and the other side as all evil.

    WOW!

    Let's build more fences like JESUS did, right?

    And don't give me that "pro-choice" biz because even GOD gives "choice" (Joshua 24:15)!
