The Democrats blast CEOs and the Super Rich always demonizing them for elections. They look at their perks and compare them to the average worker to incite class warfare for every election. However, the Super Rich have nothing on politicians. They can create foundations for tax free living like the Clintons, or rent yachts like Obama for the lavish lifestyle.
Unbeknownst to most, the president of United States gets all these perks and more or private jets that CEOs of multinational companies, but the exception is he doesn’t have to pay taxes on these benefits AT ALL. So while the protesters demand Trump’s tax returns, they turn a blind eye to politicians living large at government expense. Even ABC News quoted: “Some accountability needs to be put in place. We won’t have them kicking sand in the face of taxpayers any longer.”
