Mitt Romney says he’s paid adequate taxes but won’t release records
You can believe anything Mitt Romney has to say because tomorrow is another day
We all know you have not paid any federal income taxes for ten years, so just come clean
OK, so Mitt and Ann Romney do not wish to be guests of the prison system, so they won’t release their funny tax returns
Mitt Romney: I got money back from my federal income taxes, but it was fair… Really

    Even if Romney only paid 14% last year, that would mean he paid in almost 3 million.
    Do you take advantage of every loop hole?

    I'm CONVINCED that Romney is hiding something EXPLOSIVE by refusing to release his tax returns - like maybe he took advantage of the IRS amnesty regarding overseas bank accounts or some clever - but legal - ruse to pay zero taxes, like some loss carry-forward or something.

    The IRS knows what he's done. If someone has new information and that translates to millions owed the gov't, that person would stand to get a few million for a whistle blower fee. Come on all you lefties. You "know" he's hiding something. Stop whining. Put up or shut up. Romney has, why can't you??

    Who cares if you received a refund Romney. That's legal. So what's the hang-up? Why the distraction of making the public beg for you to perform the traditional-transparency practiced by all the presidential candidates over the past 50 years? What's up with that?

    One of the most common republican arguments in many cases is what is he hiding? The fact that he has tossed his own father under the bus shows that he is hiding something major. You may be comfortable with a leader who hides basic information from you, but I am not. His father must be spinning in his grave. No way Mitt could have come from his loins. lol (just love Smokey and the bandit)
