The former vice president of the Obama era and two-time presidential candidate. He is trying his luck again as one of the favorites to be the Democratic Party's nominee for 2020.

GOP Tax Scam

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017: Gone are the personal deductions average people rely on and tax deductions are limited.

You're Fired !
