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

    Romney refused to show his tax returns when he ran for Governor of Massachusetts and insisted that everyone should take his word for it that he'd paid his taxes. But it was only discovered after he was elected that he wasn't even a resident of Massachusetts nor had he paid any of the state's taxes. Now he's pulling the same stunt and if elected are we then to find out that he's claimed residency in the Caymen Islands?

That is why the American people have a right to know what he has paid in taxes if he intends to make tax policy.
    So you think as POTUS Romney would lower taxes so he would have to pay next to nothing in taxes?

    And lowering taxes would Raise taxes on the poor.

    So that's why people deserve to know what he paid in taxes?

    Your response belongs in the conspiracy theory thread.

    If Romney releases the records, I will be pissed. We've got a full-blown birther spin-off in the making. If he does reveal, he should bust out the 'long form' after the CTers get into full-swing, perhaps just before the election.

    Would you rather re-elect the Big 0 on his promise that unemployment will never go above 8%?

    In Federal Tax, that's about the amount that i ended up paying if we're using gross as the base to calculate the percent.

    I have considerably less income and considerably fewer accountants and lawyers than Mitt.

    If you are going to vote for the guy who has earned the trust, who does that leave for you?

    The guy who kept unemployment below 8%? Closed Gitmo? Unified the country?

    You've really closed down your options.

    You shouldn't be paying the same rate as Willard then. If our tax code is supposed to be graduated, then it ought to be. On the other hand, I am all for a flat income tax

    Obama never said that nor did he promise it. Christina Romer made that claim and she has since resigned. Looks like you're more interested in lying and voting for liars than you are in taking personal responsibilty for finding out the truth.

    Are you saying that the people who work for the Big 0 are in no way attached to or under the authority of the Great Man?

    What kind of a leader is ignored by his highest advisors? Is the assertion that his staff ignores him supposed to be an endorsement of his leadership style?
