And why did Holt want to spend on Trump's personal issues when he clearly didn't provide the same standard for Hillary and her problems. And the time spent on this tracked the debate away from so many of the big issues of this election such as illegal immigration, refugee policy and control/vetting, open borders, military readiness and general security. These were brushed over while Holt hit Trump with fifteen personal issue questions and barely touched Hillary but, as we've said before, Lester didn't want to end up akin to a leper like what happened to Matt Lauer not long ago.
But back to the subject at hand, taxes. Donald Trump has been audited nearly every year for the past decade, unlike many of his fellow billionaires who are left untouched. He has used every legal step to meet his legal obligations while not paying any more than is required. If he has paid nothing, it's because of the tax code which employs incentives for businesses to produce products which power the revenue of the American economy. And if we don't like that approach, then it is up to us to lobby to change the tax laws. And further on that issue, can anyone find an example where Hillary Clinton, while in her tenure as a United States Senator from New York, submitted and worked for any major tax bills to change the status quo? It's likely you can't find one. As she so often does, Hillary is talking out of both sides of her mouth since she has, once again, shown nothing that she has done while in powerful positions to help change those things that she rails about. But, then again, isn't it all just a distraction, designed to change the focus from those things she really can't defend?
Hopefully, now having gotten his "feet wet" in debate one, Trump will not allow the narrative to get off in those things which, while significant to some, is not what this election is all about. What people want to know is who is going to bring America and Americans back to a prominent status in the world? Hillary's push for more and more government will never do that, the past is just a living example of why not. And if you really want to clean up the disgusting state of taxes and stop the interrogations of fear continually used by the Internal Revenue Service, take a look at the Fair Tax, a system which will put the decisions back where they belong in the first place, with we, the people. If so many in the Washington Establishment are petrified of letting people determine how much they pay in taxes by what they purchase, it's gotta' be an improvement.
