Tax March Applauds Congressional Progressive Caucus for Pushing Neal to Obtain Trump's Tax Returns


In response to the Congressional Progressive Caucus pushing Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal to quickly obtain Trump's tax returns, Tax March spokesperson Ryan Thomas released the following statement:

"We applaud the Congressional Progressive Caucus for demanding that Chairman Neal immediately seek President Trump's personal and business tax returns. These documents are critical for conducting effective oversight of Trump's administration and investigating his incredibly troubling conflicts of interest. House Democrats must stop slow-walking this process.

"Chairman Neal has both the power and the responsibility to move expeditiously to obtain and release President Trump's tax returns--and continuing to move slowly does an incredible disservice to the American people."

The Tax March is a growing national movement that extends far beyond one day of marching. Led by working Americans who are tired of systems that are rigged in favor of the super-rich, the Tax March movement maintains that any reform to the tax code should be about closing loopholes for the wealthy and big corporations and building an economy that invests in working people, whether white, black, or brown, and prioritizes economic justice particularly for communities of color.
