    Re: Mitt Romney: 'I Never Paid Less Than 13 Percent' In Taxes

    I just don't understand how ANYONE can believe Mitt Romney paid NO taxes in the last 10 years. And if you can't believe that he didn't pay taxes for the last 10 years, then why is this important?

    Will it solve the unemployment problem? The economy problem? Housing problem? If not, why the hell is this even on the RADAR for this election other than partisan tripe which should be ignored?

    Look, what you're saying is the same thing as birthers/school-record people:

    That's the same as "Obama should have released the birth certificate!" and "his school records! What's he hiding?!"

    One would think that after birthers and school-record people, Obama supporters would be a little more sensitive to making the same mistake.

    Shouldn't the Mod's combine the 100 or so 'mitt should show his taxes!' threads into one large birther like thread? Heck, it seems it might be approaching the point of the subject having it's own forum so everyone with common sense doesn't have to both seeing it non-stop.

    secondly it shows exactly the amount of adjusted tax he paid percentage wise...this is pertinent since he and ryan are running on TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH to the tune of a full 20%....
    A. What does it matter how much he paid in taxes when he has NEVER been in a position to control the tax rate previously? B. Please show your source for the 20% TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH plan from an Official Romney Campaign source. Thanks in advance.
    the american people have a right to see romneys tax returns just like ryans and obamas.....its clear hes trying to keep something from the american people..and its eitehr how little he actually paid in taxs or where and how he has his money ducked all over the place....but the bottom line is he and the rich cant afford to have it rubbed in americas face just how little they really do pay in taxs and how all their whining is and has been a crock of ****
    And what does how much he pays in taxes have to do with his ability to lead the country???

    Why is nobody making any sense with all of this nonsense.....

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I'm afraid it going to be a topic for the rest of the campaign, Romney will have to withdraw if he reveals those forms.

    Why? What do those forms have to do with his ability to be a leader of this nation?

    What possible information could be contained within that would cause him to withdraw?

    I believe he took amnesty for unreported income deposited in his (formerly) secret Swiss bank account. The Swiss bankers were forced to reveal the names on their numbered accounts in 2009. Romney closed his account around the time the Govt. offered an amnesty deal to account holders. He didn't even mention the Swiss account in his financial disclosure forms until called on it. He is obviously quite embarrassed by it.
