Americans finally got a look at President Trump’s tax returns, thanks to The New York Times, which did the job House Democrats failed to do. Trump has not paid any federal income tax in 10 of the last 15 years. In 2016 and 2017, he paid just $750.
It’s an incredibly outrageous story. The median household pays nearly three times as much federal income tax than the sitting president did. But more importantly, Trump’s appalling business career is emblematic of an economy that is rigged in favor of wealthy elites who don’t have to obey the law or face any consequences for failure.
