    I think they might be very interested to get a hold on that information.

    Mitt Romney earned more than $42 million over the past two years, and paid $6.2 million in taxes at an effective rate averaging 14 percent, according to documents provided by the Romney campaign today.

    The tax rate that Romney paid both in 2010 and 2011 is less than what most middle-income Americans were required to pay, mainly because a majority of Romney's earnings were derived from investments rather than wages.

    The former Massachusetts governor released his tax returns amid intense scrutiny into his financial records and repeated calls by his rivals, and even some supporters, to release his tax information.

    In 2010, Romney made $21.7 million, on which he gave nearly $3 million in taxes at an effective tax rate of 13.9 percent. In 2011, the former governor earned a similar amount, and will pay more than $3.2 million in taxes at a rate of 15.3 percent.

    It's "an extensive disclosure and we feel that it satisfies the public's, if not the Obama opposition research guide desire to look at the Romneys," the former governor's campaign counsel, Ben Ginsberg, said in a conference call this morning.

    It's "an extensive disclosure and we feel that it satisfies the public's, if not the Obama opposition research guide desire to look at the Romneys," the former governor's campaign counsel, Ben Ginsberg, said in a conference call this morning.

    Romney's tax rate appears to be considerably low for someone with his amount of wealth, but Ginsberg pointed out that capital investments are taxed at the corporate level, at a rate of about 35 percent.

    The returns also showed that Romney and his wife, Ann, gave away $3 million in charitable donations in 2010, including $1.5 million to the Mormon church. In the past two years, Romney and his wife, Ann, gave just a little bit less, about 10 percent, to the Church of Latter Day Saints.

    The two put their assets in a blind trust when he became governor of Massachusetts in 2003.

    One aspect of Romney's wealth that has come under some scrutiny are his investments in Cayman Island. Brad Matt of Ropes and Gray, Romney's trustee who handles his family's funds, clarified today that those investments are in "third party entities," not funds, and that it does not constitute a foreign account but rather a foreign investment. Matt said the decision to invest there was made by him, not Romney and that the two are not allowed to confer with each other on these investments.

    Boob, what's with the fixation on the taxes that Romney pays? Everyone knows the guy is rich so what's your point? Is it childish envy? Is it Hate? Is it Joulousy? Is it that you sit at your computer instead of making your own fortune? What is it?

    If you are so concerned about his taxes, what tax rate SHOULD he be paying? What tax rate are YOU paying... And what business is it to know what ANYONE's tax rate is? If you think like your Undocumented Hero thinks... that the rich don't pay enough, How much is "Enough"?

    How do you define "FAIR"? The gov't spent $3.8 Trillion last year and there are 310 Million people in the U.S. So $3.8 Trillion in spending, and 310 million people, that's $12,258 owed by every man, woman and child in the U.S., or almost $50,000 for a typical family of four.

    After donating over $7 Million to charity, Romney estimates that he will pay around $3.2 million in federal taxes for 2011.

    Did you pay YOUR FAIR SHARE of taxes for last year, Booby?

    Again who cares what the man made, he worked for it. For those who don't know he gave most if not all his inheritance away to charity and his church and made his millions like others He Earned it. Now most of his income comes from his investments meaning to all you left-wing idiots (this is money that he was already taxed on at 28 or 30%) the tax which Obummer likes to throw about is the 13% tax from dividends on his business "INVESTMENTS" which is used to create JOB's.......so you over tax this people will pull their money out of the market and put it in Bonds so the money to start up companies would dry up...meaning to the Lefties no investment money no job creation....got it??

    The 6 months extension is a political / campaign move. Romney knows that when he releases his tax returns for 2011 the AGI (adjusted gross income) will become the Obama talking point of the day by Obama and the Obama media. Obama will harp on how much Romney made and his effective rate and fail to mention the millions Romney gives to charity. Romney is just withholding political ammo until the last possible minute.

    BTW.....Obama's secretary paid a higher effective rate than Obama did and she only makes $95,000.00 per year. Obama reduced his tax rate (as Romney does) through charitable contributions and perhaps "tax deferred" investments into retirement account

    Romney's Defense Plan Means Bad Business for America
    By Anya Barry, March 31, 2012

    Recently, President Obama unveiled a plan he claimed would cut U.S. military spending. However, several independent experts have come forward stating that the “cuts” are simply slowing future growth in military spending from previously projected figures, rather than actually cuts to the Defense budget.

    In fact, Obama’s “cuts” are distributed over a period of ten years, over which time the next administration, whether under Obama or a Republican president, could make drastic changes to Obama’s non-binding plan. As the likelihood of his candidacy continues to near inevitability, Mitt Romney’s defense plan sheds light on the GOP’s likely strategy over the next several years.

    Romney's Defense Plan Means Bad Business for America
    By Anya Barry, March 31, 2012

    Recently, President Obama unveiled a plan he claimed would cut U.S. military spending. However, several independent experts have come forward stating that the “cuts” are simply slowing future growth in military spending from previously projected figures, rather than actually cuts to the Defense budget.

    In fact, Obama’s “cuts” are distributed over a period of ten years, over which time the next administration, whether under Obama or a Republican president, could make drastic changes to Obama’s non-binding plan. As the likelihood of his candidacy continues to near inevitability, Mitt Romney’s defense plan sheds light on the GOP’s likely strategy over the next several years.

    Romney has been an outspoken critic of Obama’s plan to slow the growth in military spending, arguing instead that spending should be increased at an even greater pace than previously scheduled. According to a recent article in the Dayton Daily News Romney spokesperson Ryan Williams told the paper, “…[he] has set a baseline defense spending target equal to 4 percent of the nation's Gross Domestic Product," Williams stated. The Dayton Daily News went on to note, “The nation recorded a $15.2 trillion Gross Domestic Product, the output of goods and services, in 2011.” That would put baseline spending alone, which excludes the war budget, the military programs of the CIA and State Department, and other military contingencies, at $608 billion. Obama has proposed a defense budget of $525 billion for FY 2011. Over the next ten years, Romney’s military spending plan—in comparison to Obama’s—would total at least 61% higher, according to research conducted by the Cato Institute.

    And while Romney has advocated for decreasing the size of the Federal Budget, it he has not specified what sectors would be cut under his Administration, citing only that he would cut 20% of overall government spending. A 20% overall reduction amidst a substantial increase in military spending would certainly translate into massive cuts to social programs that Republicans in Congress have already targeted.

    Stating an interest in increasing defense spending when America is winding down its involvement in two wars is irresponsible and unnecessary. Ultimately, Romney’s plan would increase defense spending 42% beyond Cold War levels, as Christopher Preble highlighted in his article “Recalculating Romney’s Four Percent Gimmick.” Coupled with the fact that this presidential hopeful has no specific plan where he will decrease spending to offset his plan to build up America’s military in peace-time makes Mr. Romney’s claims to decrease federal spending nothing but words. For Americans concerned with government spending, Mr. Romney’s plan to funnel additional billions of American tax-dollars into military spending increases debt and makes very little business sense.

    In fact, one recently published research study by the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) found that, contrary to the popularly held belief of many right-wing politicians such as Mr. Romney, an increase in military spending would not produce nearly as many jobs nationwide as would the same amount of money invested in areas such as infrastructure, education, clean energy, or healthcare. In an interview with The Real News, Robert Pollin the Co-Director of PERI stated, “You will get more high-quality jobs spending on the green economy, infrastructure, or healthcare than you will spending on the military.” In one especially hard-hitting example, Pollin sited figures found by PERI, showing that if the government was to spend $1 billion towards job growth, 16,800 jobs would be created by investment in clean energy, compared to just 11,800 jobs through the military. These numbers underscore the particularly faulty logic in Mr. Romney’s belief that increasing the military’s budget at the expense of other sectors is a sound source of governmental funding. The reality is that Mr. Romney’s plan would simply prolong the military industrial complex, consequently continuing to cripple the country in a deeper mire of debt, unemployment, and unwise allocation of funds.

    In response to the astronomical rate of American military spending, the Institute for Policy Studies and the International Peace Bureau launched a day for citizens around the world to speak out against their governments’ use

    Look we have been waiting for documents for years from Obama that we have not gotten so what does this have to do with electability. Right now almost every person I know is so fed up with our current man that they would vote for anyone else before they would vote for Obama. We need someone in there who knows how business works, who can somehow make this country work again and we have a better chance for that with Romney. Obama has blown trillions of dollars and created mostly jobs in the public rather than in the private sector. He wanted to create Green jobs but we are buying the panels for solar from China and there is no way you can make me believe we could not have retrofitted a plant in each state to make the panels here which would have created jobs rather than sending the work over to China. This man is the president and you want to make me believe he could not have gotten it done? Bull!!! So unless Romney's tax returns show he is not capable of being economically successful I don't see that they make a bit of difference.

    IMO, this does not nor will reveal if Mitt Romney is transparent. Clearly, he is not. The reason his corp is based in the bahams is so nobody can see where he invests his money or how it is used (PAC) hint. It also protects him from paying taxes in America in spite of the fact that he benifits from the taxes paid in America by Americans. Clearly hiding behind his wife and children to avoid a concern raises a question of transparency combined with the secret forums where his alleged platform and stance is leaked from This also demonstrates his selfish desires trump creating jobs yet again. My conclusion, He is not patriotic, once I her he deferred the draft by vacationing in France as a missionary?, during the Viet Nam war is yet another example, he could have missioned among out patriotic troops there. I didn't have that option, I chose our Country! Further more I want a Pres that promotes Build it and Buy it in America, not off shore along with the jobs he sent there (not very patriotic). Sad!
