    It means nothing to me.... as tax records have nothing to do with the ability to lead a country.

    Obama could release 25 years.... still wouldn't mean jack to me.

    What relevant information about his ability to lead is contained within his tax records?

That is why the American people have a right to know what he has paid in taxes if he intends to make tax policy.
    I have not seen this tax plan.

    Please show me your source for this information from an Official Romney campaign source.

    Thanks in advance.

    Nobody is saying Mitt did anything wrong. Long Term capital gains are taxed at 15% (the Bush tax cuts reduced the LTCG rate from 20% to 15% in 2003). The question is why do rich people who can earn most of their income from LTCG get such a low tax rate on that type of income. It's a bone thrown to rich people. That tax break should die in Dec. The economy ran better when the LTCG rate was 20%.

    BUT.... what does that have to do with Romney's ability to lead?

    Tax records are a PERSONAL item. The purpose of viewing them needs to be a PERSONAL one. Specific to ROMNEY'S (not anyone else's) ability to lead the country.

    What you are saying its a bone thrown to rich people even though Middle class people pay the same rate because the difference between my earned income rate (35%) and the LTCG tax is 15% while most people pay a far lower marginal earned income tax rate.

    Its not a bone at all. THe real difference is that we "rich people" are taxed so much higher on earned income

    No. I am not pointing a finger at Romney alone. He is the center of the conversation and he did whisk away money to foreign accounts (which is totally legal. I won't argue that.) I was pointing a finger at our tax codes. There is no excuse for someone bringing in $20+ million a year to pay a lesser amount in federal income tax than someone who works their asses off to put bread on the table.

    A simple fix would be a flat tax rate at 15% of ALL income no matter where it ends up. This would be a non-argument then and the campaigns could maybe, just maybe, focus on issues
