Response to getagrip_already (Reply #42)

58. I guess by

...your rule of having "something to hide", we primary voters also deserved to see the promised speeches to Wall Street that Hillary kept saying she would release.

If Bernie is indeed hiding something "bad" in his taxes he should pay up and also pay the political price. But the fact is, even by just being in the primary, he had a galvanizing, extremely positive effect on the Party because many of his main ideas are now the Platform of the next candidates and have entered the mainstream conversation nationally, even though once branded as "radical".

Medicare for All, addressing student debt, and raising the minimum wage are far more important than anything that could be "lurking" in Bernie's taxes, who by the way is on the lower to middling end of income for members of Congress. But he's in a bracket where his own taxes would go up if the progressive tax reform he advocates were ever to be passed. He's all for that happening.
