Opinion | How the release of Trump’s taxes blows up a big GOP mythOpinion by Paul Waldman and Greg Sargent: Now that the committee has voted to release them, the big news isn’t just what will be found in the tax returns. It’s also that longtime Democratic assertions about the need to access them have been vindicated. All the criminals in the gop. Congress stated they needed the tax returns for valid legislative purposes. That was a damn lie. All they are doing is trying to smear the former President. Nobody cares anymore. We all know what kind of guy he is. Deal with it. Now do Biden
Always the same traitors. I don’t care if keeping them gives republicans the illusion of a majority or not. These same people always vote with democrats or need to be coddled. RINOS Cornyn betrayed us Texans!!!!!!!! I’m so disgusted by Republicans. I hate everything the Biden administration is doing but damn democrats always get things done and republicans do nothing – just roll over and let democrats have whatever they want. Why do we even have a Republican Party? Time for a 3rd party.

The GOP has done irreparable harm to America, the base, and the party. Party’s over

Republicans are inclined to treat oversight as something that is inevitably political to its core, because they believe that government is bad or corrupt by default. As Breitbart News’ Sean Moran wrote on Tuesday, the legislation gives $45 billion in military and economic aid to Ukraine, which — added to the $66 billion lawmakers have already approved for that purpose — brings the sum of American taxpayers’ dollars going to the country to over $110 billion.
