Will Voters Stand By As Democrats Hold A Tax Cut Hostage? [Watch]
Seth Lipsky, New York Sun
Two candidates run for president. Tweedledum and Tweedledee oppose the Pacific trade pact. Both favor legal immigration. They promise jobs and a strong defense. One big difference is Tweedledum releases her tax returns. Tweedledee refuses.
What do you know? Tweedledee wins — in an electoral landslide.
One might think this fact would have caused a light to go off in the brain of Sen. Chuck Schumer and The New York Times. That they would see at least the possibility that voters might not care whether Donald Trump releases his tax returns and might even admire his refusal to be buffaloed.
But no, the Democrats seem to be under the impression that it escaped the notice of the American voter that Mr. Trump is rich. Even though he campaigned in his personal gold-plated jumbo jet and lives in his own gilded tower on Fifth Avenue.
The Democrats reckon the voters are not only dumb but also blind.
They would have to be both to fall for the latest gambit, in which Democrats seem bound and determined to stake the future of their party on a campaign to force President Trump to release his tax returns.
