Yes, require a public audit each year they are in office, and require them to release their medical records

They should pay taxes based on their income like everyone else.

@B36VTMXConstitution from Kansas answered…3mos

they way debates are done should be changed to a more expressive way of getting there political views to the public

@B2Z99TTConstitution from Florida answered…3mos

It seems not to add up to a hill of beans to do so. Elected government servants have gotten rich beyond belief from legitimate and corrupt activities. It will never end....No matter the law.

@B2D5NMNLibertarian from Minnesota answered…4mos

No, unless their former occupation has a disclosure agreement, then Yes.

@B25QTTYTranshumanist from California answered…4mos

Yes, if the person is in a position where those resources are needed

@B24492XWomen’s Equality from Tennessee answered…4mos

No, but congress should have access to be sure they’re not criminally inclined. Businesses require a financial check for some positions, PODUS shouldn’t be different

@9ZRT9ZLGreen from Tennessee answered…5mos

No, but if a politician will not release their tax returns my chances of voting for them are slim.

@9ZMNM5CConstitution from Missouri answered…5mos

political candidates tax returns should be reviewed by an internal committee but not required to be made public

I believe they should be watched over, but this is not the public's job.

@9YSGRDHWorking Family from Virginia answered…7mos

It depends. Only if they have some sort of legal issue involving that topic. If not just like any other American citizen they don’t have to show anything to anyone without probable cause

@9WTY4KBDemocrat from Oklahoma answered…9mos

No, full tax returns, health, and other personal records should not be under public scrutiny, but there should be some system in place that shows proof of annual tax filings being made, no health issues that could affect their time in office, and criminal convictions should be provided. Our politicians should be held to a higher standard; we want reps that follow the law, are well enough to serve, and transparent about their pasts.

No, tax returns have nothing to do with their ability to perform their duties and it is non of our business. I would respect them more if they did but they shouldn't be required to and if they release their medical records also I would respect them even more.

@9VYSTDWPeace and Freedom from California answered…10mos

I feel like if this were to happen, there's also the chance they could falsify the documents.

@9VY7N9MDemocrat from Georgia answered…10mos

Yes, and should also be required to release their medical records, and should be audited each year they serve in office

@9VXNN25Constitution from Indiana answered…10mos

No, but during their tenure they should so we can see how much they're really making in office.

@9VQ27ZMRepublican from Minnesota answered…11mos

To a bipartisan committee made up of citizens and officials where bipartisanship is strictly adhered to and evenly distributed, yes. There should be accountability. However, there's no reason for the media or general public to be brought into that discussion unless a certain number of predetermined (again by a bipartisan group) red flags go up in a way that shows a person might need an additional layer of accountability.

@9VNBJNRConstitution from Virginia answered…11mos

Audit both tax records and medical records but not disclose it to the public.

@9VNBMF3Transhumanist from Texas answered…11mos

I think candidates should only be forced to release that information if there are allegations of their legal character.

@Josh-SealsVeteran from Tennessee answered…1yr

No, if the person has unlawful tax returns, then they should be held liable. Not made in to a public mockery. It's disgraceful.

@9TG3PD7Constitution from Idaho answered…1yr

Only if they feel so inclined to do. That is someones personal information. However it can appear as something of a concern if they are so secretive about it.

@9T79VYDSocialist from Tennessee answered…1yr

Abolish "representatives", "officials", "politicians", et cetera; Abolish the bourgeois state in favour of true democracy[(radical/direct/liquid/et cetera) democracy, not statism].

@9T4S6SPTranshumanist from Kansas answered…1yr

Yes if that is what they state to stand by their word and audit if need be

@9T2G783Independent from Florida answered…1yr

No, I would respect them more if they did but they shouldn't be required to tax return have nothing to do with their ability to perform their duties and it is none of our business but I would respect them more if they release their tax returns even more if they release their medical records also

@9SH2QKRWomen’s Equality from Tennessee answered…1yr

Yes, only if there is a circumstance where they are potentially being fraudulent

@9SGQGWFIndependent from Utah answered…1yr

No, but they should be required to release where they got their campaign money.

@9S37G3MRepublican from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

Regardless, we must be a capitalist totalitarian dictatorship.

@9RY8J6KLibertarian from Colorado answered…1yr

No, but once in office their financial records should be studied and a summary available to the public.

@9RWSLDVVeteran from Washington answered…1yr

No, because that seems like an invasion of their privacy and if they do it to political candidates that probably means citizen will be doing it next.

I think medical records and/evaluations pertaining to their mental and physical health in relation to the job they are being voted for would be much more valuable.
