    Re: Did Mitt Romney go a full 10 years without paying taxes?

    Like any other business man Romney has an accountant that does his taxes for him and if he has hired a good firm that can find tax saving loopholes or an investor that knows how and when to move his money..well thats what those people are hired to do right?...........he was a Gov. and has ran for president 8 years....does that sound like somebody who would evades taxes?.......and as far as Reid goes, if he has some "informant" who knows first hand info on Romneys taxes and has disclosed that info I think there is some kind of violation of a privacy act and the IRS should investigate that claim

    I don't know, has proof been presented to support Reid's claim? If not then there is no answer, just a guess.

    Way to present horribly biased poll options without even including the only right answer, which is "who the **** knows".

    I still think this is like the birther crap. If Obama released his birth certificate immediatley the birther mouvment would have died a quick death. By delaying more and more people made themselves look silly. When Romney finally releases his tax returns those making outlandish claims about him will look foolish as well.

    Nah, they'll still dog him, just like they would have dogged Obama even if they were there when he was born.

    Only people who would never vote for Obama are birthers so who cares? but by making them look silly, some people on the fence might think who are these nutjobs on the other side? I'll go with Obama. Remember not everyone is really tuned into politics, many just have a passing interest and when they hear one side go loopy over nonsense they tend to move to the less crazy side. I think Romney is hoping that will happen here as well. When someone jumps up and down and says Romney didn`t pay taxes for 10 years, then Romney produces forms and proves he did that guy will have a hard time getting people to take other points too seriously.
    Well that the theory at least doesn`t mean it will work. If he releases too soon before the election he wont get as good an impact, plus there will be less people making outlandish claims.

    "Romney’s 2010 federal tax return shows he paid 13.9 percent tax on income of $21.6 million."

    Doesnt matter whether he did or he didnt as long as he refuses to release his financials...a gallup poll today said a 54% of americans want romney to release his taxs.
    Lets put this in perspective, Romney is a very rich man...who is advocating another 20% tax cut for the wealthiest americans that will cost the middle class more to give them....Americans have a right to see if the very rich NEED another tax cut or if they arent paying near what they should in the first place
    Harry Reid wanted one thing to stir up a big diversion and he did just that...does he care about all the attacks on him personally...hell no why should he, hes not running for anything

    Reid put Republicans in a catch 22 situation. If they respond to Reid's allegations they bring back the issue of Romney's taxes, which fizzled out during the Colorado shooting. However, if they don't respond the allegations would be substantiated.
