Progressive organizations said Tuesday that they are stepping up their efforts to press House Democrats to immediately request President Trump’s tax returns from the Treasury Department, after some lawmakers suggested that the request would likely be made soon.
Tax March and Stand Up America said that they are hosting a “national day of action” on Tuesday, when constituents will urge Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee to publicly demand that the panel’s chairman, Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), immediately ask for Trump’s tax returns.
Some states already passed a lwa that would requiere Presidential candidate to relase his tax returns if he wants to be in their ballots for 2020.
Washington State has joined New Jersey to get President Trump removed from their 2020 presidential ballot if he doesn’t release his tax returns.
Both states have passed a law that would require every participant in the election to show their tax returns since President Trump’s has refused to show his.
Eighteen states have considered legislation this year that would require presidential and vice presidential candidates to post their tax returns to appear on the ballot during a primary or general election, according to data from the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL).
In addition to Washington, several other states, including California, Hawaii and New Jersey are considering similar bills. Many, though not all, of the legislatures considering the bills are controlled by Democrats, but even in Republican-controlled states, Democrats have put forth such legislation. Measures failed earlier this year in Mississippi, New Mexico and New Hampshire.
Trump has long insisted that he won’t release his returns because they are under audit, though that would not preclude him from doing so. The documents have become something of a liberal white whale, and Democrats at the federal level have been pursuing laws or legal maneuvers aimed at obtaining them.
Liberals also are pushing for a popular vote winner which means that these laws will mean a lot!
There are 12 states that are pushing for the popular vote: Colorado— Vermont, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Washington, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, and California— have passed legislation in their respective statehouses agreeing to favor the popular vote in presidential elections. The addition of Colorado’s nine electoral votes brings the total to 181. New Mexico, with 5 electoral votes, could be the next state to sign on to the compact, as its state senate recently passed a bill in favor of awarding electoral votes to the national popular vote winner and is awaiting the governor’s signature there. The same is true in Delaware, which has 3 electoral votes. Those two states would add another 8 electoral votes to the compact, getting it up to 189 total electoral votes–putting it 81 electoral votes shy of adoption. Although the popular vote movement has been branded as a bipartisan effort by supporters of the legislation, most of the states that have signed onto the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact are blue states.
