A TAXING SITUATION
One street in the nation’s capital will be crowded Saturday. Progressive activists will stage a “Tax March” along Pennsylvania Avenue from the U.S. Capitol past the Trump International Hotel, just three blocks from the White House — then it’s on to the Lincoln Memorial.
MoveOn.org and a coalition of 27 other groups are the organizers, and they are obsessed by one idea: President Trump’s tax returns.
“What are you hiding? We need a president who works for all Americans, and a tax system that does, too. Release your tax returns and commit to a fair tax system for the American people,” the coalition says in a joint statement.
“Feel free to wear your own costumes/outfits and bring your own clever signs!” the organizers advise participants.
Speakers include Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, Reps. Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Maxine Waters of California plus such supporting organizations as the Endangered Species Coalition, the American Federation of Teachers, the Working Families Party and the National Domestic Workers Alliance.
“We don’t know very much about our president, his financial entanglements, or his taxes because he refuses to reveal them,” notes Ms. Waters.
