Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling today because I have grown frustrated with Congress' inaction when it comes to examining President Trump's tax returns. Yesterday, thousands of protesters marched in 200 cities across the U.S. - polls show that 74% of Americans believe Donald Trump should release his tax returns. Why has Congress failed to make that happen?
According to experts there are a few ways Congress can examine the returns through legislation or with the power of oversight in various committees. Billionaire Donald Trump has business dealings spread across domestic and international spheres. One of the strongest foundations of our country is the premise of government oversight and accountability to the public.
By not releasing his tax returns, the President is sending a message that he believes he does not owe such responsibility to the nation. If my representative fails to step it up on this issue, I will not be supporting them come the next election.
