Graham’s 2020 Tax Law for POTUS Candidates Unconstitutional

Making sh!t up again.

Breitbart: Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) is proposing a federal law that would require all candidates for president to release their 1040 personal income tax returns, including President Donald Trump. But such a law should not survive a court challenge, because it would be unconstitutional.

Article II of the Constitution sets forth three criteria to be eligible for president. A person must be (1) a natural born citizen, (2) at least 35 years of age, and (3) been residing in the United States for at least 14 years before the election.

That is all. Everything else is left to the voters to decide whom they want as commander in chief. Consequently, a federal statute requiring submitting tax returns would impose a requirement beyond what the Constitution specifies. Any candidate running for the presidency in 2020 would have legal standing to challenge the statute’s legality in court.

Several Supreme Court cases involving Congress buttress the idea that Graham’s idea would not pass constitutional muster.  more

  1. Every time she is featured I feel the need to lie, and tell people I’m from Georgia. I will go out of my way to vote for a Democrat next time.

  2. First, I would like to see his tax filings and all the rest of the dems and rinos. I want to know how they got so rich on their set saleries.

  3. Lindsay is working hard for Obama and the Dems to make Trump look like an ass. I hope he is voted out of office and forgotten about.
    loser RINO!

  4. So, I have a question. If I call this POS a schmuck or putz, is that considered, “cultural appropriation” . . . or just “totally appropriate”?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

  5. Now is the time to start looking at Graham to begin to work out the best strategy for a nomination battle in 2020. With Trump in the WH and shaking things up I suspect that conservatives in South Carolina could be open to having another look at their Senator and his actions (including this one aimed directly at Trump) over the years. If actual conservatives (Tea Party members perhaps) can start talking to people now and a search starts to identify (maybe not talk to yet) good candidates there’s a chance that Lindsay could be unseated.

  6. All the foot-dragging in congress, no repeal of Obamacare yet, and this turd burgler has time for this bullshit? He has to go. Please, tea party, someone, anyone please primary this prick out. I am begging you.

  7. She’s carrying a sweet pickle, I’d bet on it.

    Now get the rinos off their asses and real legislation
    moving, like a phocken budget.

  8. how about a law verifying the candidates ability to even run for potus so we don’t ever get another obama, first you pedophile grahmmy!

    how about a law eliminating the irs, you know the enforcement arm of the fed reserve.

    go eat your pizza, faggot!
