    Romney Won't Release Tax Returns

    The dems will a heyday with this....and they're entitled to, IMO.

    Mitt Romney, a multimillionaire who is by far the wealthiest of the Republican presidential candidates, said he has no plans to release his income tax returns if he wins his party's nomination.

    Romney, whose most recent disclosure in August estimated his personal wealth as high as $250 million, said yesterday he had already released extensive financial information and had no “current plans” to make his tax returns public.


    If the former Massachusetts governor wins the nomination and sticks to his plan, he would be one of the only presidential nominees in the last three decades to withhold his income tax return. While income tax information is private and there is no legal obligation to disclose it, presidents and nominees for the office have done so routinely since the 1970s.

    We already know he's a wealthy corporate guy.....why is this important? Don't we already know the source of his income?

    I don't think he should have to.

    The good news is we won't have to. He'll change his mind in a few weeks anyway!

    The media hasn't asked for mine yet. Probably because they're not interested in seeing all the zeros.

    I'm pretty much with you on that. Everyone knows he's wealthy. Doesn't really matter how many millions he makes, as long as it's legal.

    He'll disclose it sooner or later anyway, I'm sure.

    Seriously, my only reason for posting it was to pre-empt your post calling for consistency and accusing the pubs on the board of hypocrisy. Sorry for ruining your black panther party.

    Are you part of the 47%???I think the controversy will be when people see the % of tax he pays each year. All I know is I paid, with FICA and payroll, well over 40% of my income in taxes this year (and that's before sales tax and in addition to $20,000 in interest on loans taken out to be more productive, and therefore providing more tax base). The tax system in our country is a disaster.

    Ha! I wish I could lower my tax responsibility that much!

    Are those zeros in front of or behind the decimal point?
    I cried because I had no shoes until I saw a man that had no feet.

    I would imagine if he and his staff aren't concerned that not only the amount but the source of his income could be used against him by his opponents. Plus it would certainly shoot down this out-of-work noninsider political image he has tried to wrap himself in.

    "out-of-work" image? How has he done that?
