Demand Trump's Tax Returns

Did you know that for five consecutive weeks in February and March, Democrats offered a resolution on the House floor regarding President Trump's tax returns? The GOP blocked all of them. One of the reasons we're participating in the Tax March is to tell our representatives that we DO care that Trump has not released his taxes.

The release of tax returns is an essential tradition in American democracy—it demonstrates that a presidential nominee does not have conflicts of interests that would prevent them from fulfilling their duties as President. Yet even after being elected, Donald Trump continues to refuse to release his tax returns. This would be unacceptable for any President, and it’s particularly shocking given Trump’s ties to Russia. But Congress can and should do something about it.

Until we see Trump’s tax returns, we cannot be certain that foreign governments don’t have leverage over Trump that can be used to influence American policy. The integrity of American democracy is at stake here, and Congress needs to defend it.

Demand that your Member of Congress and Senators co-sponsor the Presidential Tax Transparency Act that would require Donald Trump to make his tax returns public. The bill numbers are S. 26 in the Senate and H.R. 305 in the House.

  • Get ready to rock your Town Halls with Indivisible's 'Reclaim Recess' Toolkit

    April 11, 2017

    Congressional recess is happening April 8-23. Congressional recess is a special time. It’s when Members of Congress (MoCs) come back to their home districts for extended periods of time to meet with their constituents and hold public events. These recess periods are when your MoCs prefer to hold town halls, ribbon cuttings, and otherwise garner good local press for themselves.

    The upcoming recess is a great opportunity for your group to remind your MoCs that they need to stand up for you—and that means standing up and speaking out against the Trump agenda.

    Here are the 5 issues that Indivisible will be prioritizing. The issues below are ones that will be coming up for Congress shortly — but as always, you should also push your MoCs on the issues that matter most to you.

    Ongoing Congressional Issues:

    • Demand Trump’s Tax Returns!!! 
    • Investigate Russian Interference in 2016 Election
    • The Federal Budget
      • No Cuts to Essential Programs 

      • No Funding for Trump’s Deportation Force

    Direct Feedback on Votes and Positions:

    • How did your MoC plan to vote on TrumpCare?
    • Did your Senators oppose “going nuclear” over Neil Gorsuch?

    Follow this link to learn tips and strategies on how to maximize this opportunity to influence your MoCs. Keep it up. This is working. We can win.
