I thought Democrats were really concerned about “voter suppression?”
I guess you can’t suppress people’s votes if you don’t give them the choice in the first place. Illinois is trying that out by passing a new law that forbids Trump from being on the 2020 ballot unless he releases five years of tax returns.
Lawmakers in Illinois have advanced legislation that would require President Trump to release five years of his tax returns in order to appear on the state’s 2020 presidential ballot.
The Illinois state Senate voted 36-19 on Thursday to pass the bill, which will now move to the state’s Democrat-controlled House, according to Chicago radio station WBEZ.
I can’t imagine why Illinois is such a dumpster fire of a state. I guess spending all your time on nonsense like this doesn’t leave much for actually doing positive things for your citizens.
“If you want to run for vice president or president of the United States, hey, what’s wrong with providing your tax returns for the past five years?” state Sen. Tony Munoz (D) reportedly said while legislators debated the bill.
“If you’ve got nothing to hide, you shouldn’t worry about anything,” he added.
Actually, I think the constitution might have something to say about that. Democrats arbitrarily deciding to place limits on who can run for President isn’t supposed to be a thing. The constitution is clear that the only limitations are being a natural born citizen and over 35. If Illinois is allowed to do this, what stops Texas from banning the Democrat over whatever random issue they care about?
Me Here.....It seems the State of Illinois is suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
It also seems the State is determined they know best who you must vote for.
Chalice, your State is showing how afraid they are of President Trump? Is there polling that President Trump has put the State in play? Maybe President Trump is leading?
