H.R. 305/S. 26, the Presidential Tax Transparency Act, would force Presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns, like virtually everyone else who goes to work in our government. Right-wingers who read the bill may tell you that the "Special Rule for Sitting Presidents" described in Sec. 2(a)(1) -- which would compel the person who's actually President right now (his initials are "Donald Trump") to submit his tax returns within 30 days of the bill's enactment -- is an unconstitutional bill of attainder. And you know what? They'd be right about that: the Constitution does specifically proscribe arresting and convicting folks for crimes (here, the refusal to disclose tax returns while a Presidential candidate) that weren't crimes when they committed them. But you know what else? Mr. Trump has already declared his candidacy for 2020, which makes him a Presidential candidate, which would put him under the scope of the bill, if it becomes law. You can see where a clever negotiator might have put that "Special Rule" in there only because giving it away would be worthless to the other side. Anyway, CREDO helps you tell your Congressfolk to support the Presidential Tax Transparency Act.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk and your President to reject "right-to-work" legislation, then Sign for Good still helps you do that. "Right to work" is a clever phrase, I'll give right-wingers that -- they're very good at coming up with clever phrases while their counterparts in the Democratic party are tripping over their five-syllable words and using words like "innovation" and "entrepreneurship" as if they were amulets. But so-called "right to work" laws don't actually confer upon you the right to work, or even the right to work the way you'd like -- they merely deprive unions of the ability to automatically collect dues from their members, who presumably had a say in whether or not they wanted a union and who certainly enjoy the benefits of being in one, which is why liberals often call it "right to work for less." Still we hear right-wingers say "why should anyone be compelled to pay for something they don't want," as if, you know, civilized people don't routinely pay for things they don't want, as the price of living in a civilized society. I mean, I opposed the war in Iraq, but I'm not asking for a refund of all that tax money I contributed toward it.
