US House Panel Chairman Gives IRS April 23 Deadline on Trump Taxes

"My view has always been that we need a progressive tax system which demands that the wealthiest people in this country finally start paying their fair share of taxes".

USA congressional Democrats on Saturday headed for a showdown with the Internal Revenue Service over President Donald Trump's tax returns, setting a new hard deadline of April 23 for the federal tax agency to hand the documents over to lawmakers.

But when the Times reporter reminded him that he is now someone of considerable means, Sanders responded: "I wrote a best-selling book. Then, a day later, you published a video that dishonestly attacked me for hypocrisy in my effort to address income inequality in America - a video that was excitedly discussed on many conservative websites". "So again, I don't apologize for writing a book that was number three on the New York Times best seller, translated into five or six languages and that's that".

"It is an global embarrassment that in America today we got 30 million people with no health insurance and even more who are underinsured with high deductibles and high co-payments and for all of that we end up spending twice as much per capita on healthcare as do the people of any other nation", said Sanders, who warned his audience that "the insurance companies are getting nervous" about his message.

But since the last Presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders has found wealth and fame.

Sanders said CAP and its affiliates have led the charge in floating stories critical of himself, Booker and Warren to right-wing news outlets.

"Please know that, if you fail to comply, your failure will be interpreted as a denial of my request", Neal wrote.

Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir has also defended the candidate against claims that his increased income diminished his message or ability to deliver it, telling CNN on Wednesday that Sanders believes in "opportunity for all". "He's made some money off a book". But I think these raise very, very complicated legal issues.

One reason he may have delayed his tax return release is that he is now a millionaire. He recited a laundry list of policies - including raising the federal minimum wage, government-run health care and legalizing marijuana - that he claimed were described as "too radical" by members of the media and political establishment. Podesta would later become chairman of Hillary Clinton's unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign. Sanders entered the race in February.
