I would like him to release his tax forms as a measure of transparency, but Reid's baseless accusations and demands are without merit.
    And you don't think Obama has already had the IRS check Romneys tax returns for the past 30 years or so?

    If there was anything there it would have been made official by now.

I don't know what you guys think you accomplish with this act.
    Is that the discussion we're having, or did you decide to spew a bunch of nonsense in response to my post wher eI said I'd like to be able to get away with paying only 13.9%?

    (hint: it's the latter)

    They are already doing it. The one return he realeased showed a deduction for his wifes horse and they ran a political ad about it.

    I can imagine what they would do with more years of his return to show he is just an evil rich guy.

    It should be obvious to everyone that what he is hiding is obviously worse than the shallacking he is taking right now for hiding them. Romney is in a lose-lose situation here. If he discloses, his campaign will implode....if he doesn't disclose, he has to deal with the American people losing trust in him and questioning his ethics and integrity.

    Personally, though, I find it kind of sad, and pretty repulsive, that people who don't even work for their money pay a lower tax rate than most small business owners do. The real job creators/economy builders in this country. But, unfortunately, small business owners don't write the tax laws.

    I think this is a brilliant maneuver by Ried. It puts Romney between a rock and a hard place because if he releases the returns it wil ruin him. If he doesn't, there's a cloud of suspicion hanging over him. And since Ried has done this all on his own, Obama is totally insulated.
    Obama owes Ried a steak dinne after he gets reelected.
    I have never seen brilliant and Reid in the same sentence before and I doubt I will ever see it again.

    He is not hiding anything. They are not relevant to the campaign.

    Just because he has and or makes more money than most doesn't mean he is to be held to a different standard than anybody else.

    If there was anything illegal on any of his returns the IRS wold have nailed him to the wall by now, other than that it doesn't matter what rate he paid. It is all legal.

    Where did he get the money he invested? Did he not work for it?

    If you are not happy with the current system of having different kinds of income taxed at different rates then you should do something to change it but until then it is perfectly legal.

    If you were in his shoes would you voluntarily pay 35% on your capital gains because it is kind of sad that you pay a lower tax rate on that money?
