Joe Madison, The Joe Madison Show/SiriusXM Urban View & Linda Benesch, Communications Director-Social Security Works both join Thom. If an average person were unemployed and filed a year or two of “losses” on their tax return – they couldn’t use those losses to get out of future taxes owed – but billionaire real estate developers like Donald Trump can – and that’s essentially what he did. Beyond that – even though Trump’s campaign is acting outraged at the tax loopholes helping special interests – Trump’s tax plan doesn’t do ANYTHING to close those loopholes and it’s likely that he – or his children – would still manage to pay nothing in taxes if he became president. Trump lost nearly $1 billion in a single year – so why have we been paying for it for almost two decades?
