    Yesterday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz confirmed that Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, may have committed a felony by not properly disclosing payments from Russia when applying for his security clearance.1

    And Flynn's not the only member of Trump's inner circle who has been dishonest about his dealings with Russia. Earlier this month, Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House senior adviser, Jared Kushner, failed to report dozens of meetings with foreign agents, including meetings with Russian government agents as recently as December 2016, while completing the same questionnaire as Flynn required for top-secret security clearance.

    Will you sign petition to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the FBI to demand that Jared Kushner's interim security clearance be suspended immediately?

    - It's bad enough with the White House Nepotism - this is serious.

    Trump just released his tax plan — proving to us once again where his priorities lie. The super rich and big corporations win, and we lose.

    The Trump tax plan will mean that the wealthy will pay even less taxes than they do now. Billionaires will benefit, including Trump himself. The 1% and Wall Street need to pay MORE taxes, not less.

    His plan will drain money from our communities, schools, and hospitals in order to give a break to Wall Street billionaires and big corporations.   

    The tax plan is being promoted by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and NEC Director Gary Cohn — both former Goldman Sachs executives. It’s no surprise that Wall Street loves it. It will cost us more, while letting billionaires off the hook.

    We reject a plan that allows the rich to get richer while our communities are in need of jobs and resources to thrive.

    We deserve a plan that invests in our communities, not the 1%. Sign the petition and tell Wall Street to pay what it owes.

      "The 1% and Wall Street need to pay MORE taxes, not less."

      Why?  Because paying 1,000 times what you do isn't enough?

        Whatever, Wilderness - the lack of interest Trump and the GOP have always shown regarding the Russians hacking into our systems has always been suspicious. As long as the Russians didn't use any of the bad information against them that they found, the country is apparently safe and we should all drop it. If they had been a little more concerned about this 'act of war' like the rest of us, things might be different.

        Plus, the extent of your brainwashing on behalf of the crooked rich is amazing. (Not all rich are crooks; and its not like they only exist within the GOP to make sure they are taken care of.)

        Prior to FDR establishing 'the welfare state' taxes for the rich were far higher than they are now for all kinds of really good reasons. The highest was in 1944-45, “the most progressive tax years in U.S. history,” the 94% rate applied to any income above $200,000.

        The shocking thing is that no one is asking the 1% to take this huge of a hit; but a LOT more fairness across the board would be nice - WITHOUT a bunch of loopholes for them to jump through to get out of paying taxes. This is actually one of the reasons why we want to see Trump's tax returns. We'd like to see how many stunts he has pulled to create loopholes for himself.

        Petition signed and thanks for putting it handy up here. I've never liked the idea of Jared being in the position he is in, anyway. Its not like he has anymore experience than Trump and he's wearing an awfully big hat.

          What does any of that have to do with charging some of the people more than others, for the same thing?  What does it have to do with "fair" taxation?  And why the lie that because rates were very high in the 40's that people actually paid them?  The rich are paying more today than at any time in the past, regardless of what the top rates were.  Ever hear of loopholes or exemptions?

            Go watch more BS at Fox News. The rest of us will worry about & actually take care of the country.

              Does that mean it has nothing at all to do with unfair taxation?  You were just ranting, without anything of value to add?

            please do tell us how it all works since you are a CPA {snark}

            So you're telling us that .01% paying more taxes via loopholes? I'm sure that's a typo  - yes?

              Can't find a typo - can you be more specific?  Maybe with a copy and paste instead of making things up that were never said?

              An effort to point out the difference between what is being insinuated as a result of high rates and what actual figures are.  While rates used to be higher, dollar figures were actually lower because nobody paid at the level anyway.

              Was it really that hard to pick up on?  I'll try to make it clearer in the future - sorry about that.

                "An effort to point out the difference between what is being insinuated as a result of high rates and what actual figures are.  While rates used to be higher, dollar figures were actually lower because nobody paid at the level anyway".

                If the rich were not paying at the higher rate level back in the forties, what makes you think that they are paying today now that the rates are considerably lower?

                Is there any support for your assertion that the Rich did not pay at the higher rates in the past?

                  Because we have eliminated most of the egregious loopholes of the 40's.  And because it isn't worth as much effort or cost to avoid a 40% tax as it is to avoid a 90% tax on the same amount of income.  Particularly this last is simple common sense, but something liberals countrywide choose not to think about.

                  There is plenty, but I'm not going to search it out again.  It's been shown in these forums several times.  You might start by looking at effective tax rates - the percentage of income actually paid out in taxes - as a starting point.  What you don't want is any kind of analysis about tax rates over the years, but that's mostly what you'll find.
