The worst idea ever? Hello, identity theft. Goodbye, bank account.
It’s not just Donald Trump. Everyone’s income tax bill should be public. Sunlight would curb tax avoidance, promote fairness — maybe even boost economic growth. https://t.co/JjKfsUAi3a

Nothing stopping you from making YOUR tax returns public. I doubt that you will, because you know it’s a terrible idea.

And in the spirit of “I believe what I’m saying so strongly that I’m putting mine out there” you started by posting yours…

And for additional fairness, anyone who receives any govt benefits should have those publicly released.

This is an incredibly bad take. Let’s have all employees in a company know what everyone else makes, or relatives that are looking for a hand out. Really running out of op-ed topics.

Very stupid; my personal finances are personal. I don’t care to expose mine, and I don’t care to see ANYONE else’s; it’s none of your or my business.

Oh my gosh… go away. You are just being provocative, or just plain idiotic. How about nobody shares their tax returns because it is private information and your friends and neighbors shouldn’t know these things. It’s just foolishness.

So all of my hard work & research in picking & choosing my investments would be disclosed on my schedules, & the freeloaders would make money off of me without doing anything. It would be just like it is now, only with 350 million armchair IRS agents, I’ll pass.

Problem is that people don’t generally report shady income and as such it wouldn’t shed as much light as you’re suggesting. I’m sure you’d find plenty of shady things if you investigated all members of both sides of politics

In an age where people are harassed for liking tweets, do you really think it’s wise for randos to comb thru our charitable giving so as to accuse us of wrongthink and wronggiving?
B/c the group you happen to like will inevitably be in the firing line of opprobrium …
