Well here's a way of getting Romney to release his tax records: accuse him of not paying taxes for 10 years. The heat is getting turned up on Mitt Romney to release his tax records. The claim seems to be outrageous and inflammatory, but may in fact be true. We won't know the real truth unless Romney releases historical tax records. Is Senator Reid right -- or is this all just a political stunt?

FOXNEWS.COM reports:
Mitt Romney called on Harry Reid Tuesday to reveal the source for his claim that the Republican presidential candidate has not paid taxes for 10 years, stepping up pressure as two major fact-check sites ruled Reid had no basis for the incendiary allegation.

    the best answer to this question is do you honestly think that if Romney had NOT paid his taxes that the IRS which currently answers to Barack Obama would not be all over him?

    Yes the IRS doesn't need to ask him for his Tax records because they already have them.

    Not only is it a stunt but worse is people are stupid enough to fall for it.

    And what do the dumbass repugs and teabuggers believe? That throwing money at the rich will solve all out problems. We won't have jobs to worry about, no house to worry about, no car to drive, etc. All we need to worry about is keeping the mud on our mud huts from melting in the rain. What for supper? In Romney's world, Heeere kitty kitty kitty.

    The IRS can't find their ass with a flashlight. People like Romney have a roomful of accountants specializing in hiding money, some of which are retired or ex IRS agents. One example, Romney invests in a foreign company using a foreign shell company or holding company. The profits flow into a Swiss bank account. The IRS never sees the money, which is in Euros, francs, marks, Krugerrands or whatever. The world is his playground.

    Harry Reid might have to show how he got rich on his salary and show his own records. The rumor is that he has been getting a lot of money from Las Vegas groups that support gambling....watch out because what goes around comes around....

    This is not about how rich Reid is. They all get rich in Congress because of loopholes that allow them to engage in insider trading. Its about whether Romney paid taxes for 10 yrs.

    He doesn't have to. Romney is being blown up by his own wind. I guess you saw the Romney spokeswoman today extolling the virtues of Romneycare. The prez is now up by 7 pts nationwide over Romney. I predicted the prez would win by 10 pts back in June. Its coming true.

    I do not believe there is any thing hidden,

    I think this is just a crack pot distraction to keep Americans from the important things in this election

    THE ECONOMY
    HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT
    $ 5 TRILLION IN DEBT IN 3 YEARS

    did I mention the economy ???

    1) The economy hasn't recovered from bush2 yet. We all know that.

    2) Unemployment See 1

    3) 5 trillion in debt. See bush2 tax cuts. They are still adding trillions to the deficit. The prez has nothing to do with that.

    ok, here is the deal sparky... obomma is the POTUS ( for another 4 months ) obomma 's mark is on the past 3 1/2 years.. news flash....

    the newest distraction..... the taxers ,, the " he did not pay tax "

    first the distraction was that Mr. Romney is a 1 %

    now ried and other obomma distractors want to put Mr. Romney into the 47 % ((( the 47 % that pay no taxes )))

    now just which distraction from the obomma failed administration are you going to sit on ? the 1 % or the 47 % ..

    damn, it is about the economy , unemployment , $ 5 TRILLION DEBT

    Ummm, the previous prez put a poison pill into the economy in the form of a tax cut that was not paid for, and added trillions to the deficit. The repugs and teabugers are blaming the current prez for the poison pill. Who are the hypocrites?

    BTW, Paul Ryan believes in Sharia law. How do I know? He says he is against it. While Ryan was squalling about deficit spending, he voted for 5 TRILLION in deficit spending. When Paul Ryan was squalling about the evils of the stimulus plan. AT THE SAME TIME he was begging the Obama administration for over 20 BILLION in stimulus money. So when Ryan says he is against Sharia law, he must be for it.

    a lot of people do not pay taxes. That does not make them criminals. As you stated, there are loop holes. while you may not like them, they are legal until congress closes them.....It is criminal to take bribes and pay offs which is what Reid's tax records may show.

    read my post! notice i did not say tax shelters and loopholes.....Liberals hate it when they are confronted with facts.....they try to divert attention and change the subject....I'm talking about "legal" loopholes. If you don't like them, vote the bums out who created them. Vote for the Fair Tax. That eliminates everything you are complaining about....
  • Patent1 arkiii 2012/08/17 14:24:11

    But they also allow some people to not pay taxes. Romney has just admitted he paid no less than 13% on his taxes. That would be reported income. How much income did he not report that is hidden in Swiss bank accounts. We all know $6000 is the most anyone can put in an IRA, How is it that his IRA has 100 million in it? Unless Romney can prove he is not a tax cheat, he will be considered a tax cheat. People like him are part of the problem.
  • arkiii Patent1 2012/08/19 23:35:21

    You obviously do not know anything about the Fair Tax. Please read up on it. In the US, people are innocent unless proven guilty. You are saying he is guilty unless he can prove that he is innocent. What if i called you a child molester and rapist and said that you had to prove that you were not one otherwise you were one....People like you are part of the problem...Again, if you don't like the tax loopholes, vote the change the tax law. that is the problem...
