HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE FAILS TO REPRESENT AMERICAN PEOPLE… AGAIN

“Across the nation Americans are calling for more, not less transparency”

 

Washington, DC – Late yesterday members of the House Ways and Means Committee threw away the chance to vote for a resolution that would allow the Treasury Secretary to give President Trump’s federal tax returns to Congress. Putting party politics above the demands of the American people, the committee chose not to pass the resolution. In a statement Tuesday, Chair of Patriotic Millionaires Morris Pearl said:

 

“Across the nation Americans are calling for more, not less transparency. At a time when engagement is high, the House Ways and Means Committee failed to recognize it’s critical duty to the American people. Constituents deserve to know the possible conflicts of interest, and the power that President Trump stands to gain, while in his presidency. During the campaign, voters saw a billionaire mogul brag about gaming the system to avoid taxes. Now, they should know what else he could stand to gain from his many possible conflicts of interest. There is no defensible reason that Congressional members should be protecting his business dealings or refusing to shed a light on information the public has demanded”
