Former Treasury Secretary Lew Explains: 'How To Fix Tax Evasion'


  1. Millionaire doing this must see some accountability coming to some of them.
    Than they will think twice before steal from uncle Sam.

  2. Wish we had jack lew back too.!!! We have been in desperate need of good men and women over this past administration. We need our people with integrity back

  3. They spent more time investigating middle class working people, and small business owners. While not investigating the elitist white collar people that use the loopholes to take advantage.

    1. 연구 캠브리지 분석 박람회, 사이 그룹, 러시아 IRA가 미국인 정보를 수집 한 방법, PBS의 뮬러 보고서, 탈린 매뉴얼 2.0, dahiya 교리, 세미 온 모 길레 비치 및 트럼프, 세미 온 모 길레 비치 및 로버트 맥스웰, 세미 온 모 길레 비치 및 푸틴, 1970 년대부터 현재까지 러시아 마피아, 1880 년부터 현재까지의 Jwish Mafia (이스라엘과 버그시 시겔과 마이어 란스 키, 파나마 페이퍼, 모사드, nso Jeff bezos 폰 해킹, 사우디 아라비아와 이스라엘, 조지 네이더, 평화 회담, 조지 네이더와 재판 은폐 및 미디어 블랙 아웃 제안, 조지 네이더 및 사면 dershowitz, dershowitz 및 예일 교수 트윗, George Nader 및 Sonoran 정책 그룹, Leonid Derkach 및 Rudy Giuliani, Leonid Derkach 및 북한, 운영 유령 이야기, mossad 사용 마피아와 같은 은행, 예루살렘 영토의 통제권을 포기하기 위해 요르단을 무너 뜨리는 미국 이스라엘과 사우디 아라비아, 트럼프와 이스라엘에 대한 ICC 비판, 세이셸 만남 ing, Jeffrey Epstein은 지능이었습니다.

    2. @Maximus Decimus Meridius maybe he’s a doppelganger but I just saw this guy’s picture on the news. He was busted for being at the Capitol on January 6th by bragging about it and even showing selfies about it to his dentist of all people 🤯🤯

    3. @Maximus Decimus Meridius you look just like the guy from New York that was busted or at least your picture to the left of your comment looks like him. And everyone knows that no parent would name their child with such a ridiculous name like yours.

    1. Which loopholes exactly? And hasn’t there been many shifts in Congress that could have changed something in the last 30 years?

    2. Except they were loopholes for the wealthy. The middle class person lost many deductions in the Regan era. Middle class lost all interest deductions on credit cards, car loans etc. with the exception of mortgage interest. That is just one of many deductions lost to the average working person in the Regan tax reform, however the 3 Martini lunch for wealthy corporate America remained in place. Trumps tax reform hurt the average American even more so, but has huge benefits for the wealthy

  4. The mentality that smaller government is better government is BS. Every organization needs to be properly staffed and funded to work. Good government is a good investment

  5. We need to find a way to tax “wealth”, not just income. That means their stocks, multiple vacation homes, yachts, works of art, etc. And that is difficult to calculate. BUT…we have the best minds in the world! I’m sure we can figure it out. 👍

    1. Thats right tax the wealthy people, who work, to pay welfare to those that don’t. Nice system comrade.

  6. How to fix??? Start by charging, arresting, putting before a judge, convict and then jail D.Trump…set the example

  7. Unfortunately what the 1% are doing is tax avoidance, not evasion – illegitimate but legal. There are so many loopholes and ways for the rich to avoid taxes that are not available to ordinary people. Ridiculous for interest payments on money borrowed to speculate can be offset against tax liability.

  8. Unfortunately this Tax issue is happening at a world wide level the wealthy never like to pay their fare share in taxes.

  9. lets make the dems happy and hire 10 million more IRS agents-getting paid with tax dollars

  10. It’s easier to go after the low hanging fruit than spend time and effort to get the big business’s.
