Demand Accountability from Our President
From: [Your Name]
I think Donald Trump should release his tax returns. He is the first candidate in 40 years to refuse to do so, but now that the tradition has been broken, he may not be the last.
I believe that tax returns provide voters with critical information about candidates for the most powerful office in the world, such as potential conflicts of interest, policy priorities, and financial entanglements with other countries.
Massachusetts has a simple solution to overcome the President's secrecy—we can pass a bill to requires that from now on, presidential candidates must release their tax returns in order to be listed on the Massachusetts ballot. Similar bills have been introduced in 25 other states with both Democratic and Republican sponsors. Transparency and accountability are not partisan issues.
