    Re: Should Romney Be Expected To Release Tax Records and Financial Holding Records?

    I figure I should add my thoughts to the question since I asked it. As I stated the question, the answer is probably no. There is no legal requirement so expectations of such document release is is unrealistic. However, not releasing information of the sort is perfectly legitimate to use as a campaign issue. There is nothing wrong with a candidate saying "I released all my tax and financial records, why doesn't the other guy?"

    However, it should also be noted that such expectations are personal. We are all free to expect whatever we want from candidates. They simply are under no obligation to meet those expectations. I expect presidential candidates to make clear, detailed and in depth web pages on their camping site on all the major and most minor issues and their stand on them. Not one candidate yet for president has met that expectation.

    when the liar in chief, aka the biggest tax hiker we have ever seen, claims that Romney pushed "tax cuts for his millionaire friends" that is class warfare pure and simple.

    I do not think any Americans had questions about the American patriotism of Dwight Eisenhower of Richard Nixon or John Kennedy or Jimmy Carter or George Bush. Many had serious differences of opinion about issues and policy positions but everyone accepted that those men running for President of the USA wanted the best for America and its people.

    With Romney we get a man who perhaps has decided that his own personal financial interests matter much more than those of the nation he wants to lead.

    And that serious question must be examined in detail and in depth. It may be one of the two or three biggest issues in this election.

    the only thing they deeply care about is trying to smear Romney for being rich

    and your posts continue to prove that.

    we have seen enough of your posts to know why you want to know--if Romney does anything LEGALLY to pay less tax you are going to howl and scream because you think Rich people exist to fund your far left vote buying schemes

    when class warfare is so obvious in Obama's campaign ads and so prevalent in his toadies on this board that is a stupid argument.

    of course losers see things as unfair when rich dems constantly tell them that its unfair that Romney is rich and they are poor. all you have to do is listen to the obama ads whining that the rich need to pay "their fair share" to know that class warfare is the central theme of his campaign

    Yes, I make a good middle income salary of six figures with my 50 hour work week. I do not own a television yet every time I am in a patient room the news is on and Romney is blowing off his mouth about money ...yet he quietly hides his own millions to avoid paying the percentage in taxes that middle income hard working Americans pay.

    Investigation: Mitt Romney

    For all Mitt Romney’s touting of his business record, when it comes to his own money the Republican nominee is remarkably shy about disclosing numbers and investments. Nicholas Shaxson delves into the murky world of offshore finance, revealing loopholes that allow the very wealthy to skirt tax laws, and investigating just how much of Romney’s fortune (with $30 million in Bain Capital funds in the Cayman Islands alone?) looks pretty strange for a presidential candidate.
    He is freaking fraud with his 30 million exempt ... and his attacks on healthcare policies that allowed one of the top facilities in the country to stay in the black .... keep million on private insurance and allow people like to me to privately insure my family and get tax benefits for insuring employees.

    Romney is a loser ...I have no respect for him. Romney even know what is right as he once analyzed it and spoke out in support of the many policies for ordinary hard working middle income Americans he now denounces .... just to pander to a base as he squirms and changes positions.

    Yes ... Romney should disclose his finances and where he hides them. He is not self made ... au contraire to inheritance tax law he was handed millions just as he has set up for his children.

    Talk to companies that lost American jobs by companies he dismantled to make millions for a few
    ... besides Bain was able to squirm around enforcing the tax laws of its investors’ home countries, but the presence of Swiss trustees, Bahamas trusts, and Panama corporations would raise red flags with any tax authority. Not just jobs were outsourced and companies destroyed ... multi-millionaires did not have to pay taxes on income from such.

    Particularly jarring were the Romneys’ many offshore accounts. As Newt Gingrich put it during the primary season, “I don’t know of any American president who has had a Swiss bank account.” But Romney has, as well as other interests in such tax havens as Bermuda and the Cayman Islands
    Why is Romney so guarded and selective about the limited disclosures he is willing to publicly report?
