A TAX­ING SIT­U­A­TION

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

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.
