Re: “How about lawmaker tax returns?” (TNT, 7-19).
The article reports about Congress and the very few lawmakers who disclose their tax returns. Talk about being able to make your own rules.
Congress should appoint an oversight committee to prove that its members are still common citizens with temporary responsibilities to the nation. Nowhere is it written that they should be making careers in politics.
Term limits are fine, but they should apply to any elected office, not just one at a time. Tax returns should be presented as a matter of course, as they are making the laws and it is so easy to benefit themselves when doing so.
Yes, their tax returns should be available for review. After all, no one makes them run for public office; if they do, they should show all financial returns.
