    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.
    Different standard? How many people who have run for President only release 1 year of tax records? Seems like Romney is the one who is hoping to be held to a different standard than everyone else.

    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.
    Obviously. That's why I point out the problems as I see them. Alone, I can do nothing.

    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?
    Sure. I'd be filthy ****ing rich. But I'm not as money-oriented as most people.

    Are you saying Obama was asked for 10 years of tax returns?

    It must be because Obama is Mormon.

    No he made his money.


    Sure you would voluntarily pay $20% more than you are required to. You expect anybody to believe that?

    I don't care if you believe it, cause it's the truth. That's the best thing about reality. It doesn't give a **** if you wish to ignore it or not.

    Where is the "I honestly don't know; I'll decide after Romney finally releases his tax returns" option?

    If there'd been a "He took advantage of every legal loophole and had really expensive lawyers make it possible for him to not pay his fair share" option it would have gotten my vote. Since he refuses to release his tax returns, I guess we'll never know.

    Why would that matter? I'm not filthy rich.

    You do realize what "If you were in his shoes" means right? Surely you didn't add that to your question while being completely oblivious to what it means.

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

    My best guess imo is Romney probably had years he paid little or far below the percentage that a citizen earning 50,000/year pays. They probably used questionable loopholes and it is known he had hundreds of millions in which he did not pay tax by hiding on offshore accounts. He also hold investments in companies that are not in line with the values of many Americans of any political party.

    He did not earn his money by producing or empowering anything about our citizens or country yet he was able to successfully earn income for very wealthy people (earned his own by taking a slice of the pie) and helping them to hide income in order to avoid taxes. Does that make him a devil ... no. Does that qualify him for expert status and POTUS economic growth of country on the upswing ... definite NO! That is all he has (what he boasts about with no record) ... and it is an epic failure.

    Romney is a career candidate after earning hundreds of millions by taking slices of a pie from wealthy investors/venture capitalists who took their money and jobs and got the hell out.

    I am happy with my middle 6 figure income in healthcare and I am not jealous of him. He and his family seem to enjoy their fancy life of uber wealth and toys and houses and status.

    Yet ... there is nothing about his wealth that qualifies him by his record for improving an economy ... that the last GOP POTUS plummeted. Economic growth is slow yet upward returning and I see it all around.

    Romney has spouted off and boasted everyday about his personal accumulation and economic know it all based on his own financial success. That alone should motivate him to open and be transparent on his IRS filings and he is lobbing mud at his opponent who took an economy taking a nose dive and leveled the plane and is making upward progress.

    I suspect Romney has years he paid little to no tax and questionable investments in companies that conservatives would detest and the ones who are holding their nose to vote for him might not bother if that was revealed.

    His returns would repel the conservative base and those working Americans who play by the rules would be repulsed.



    I never paid much attention to Reid ... yet his bold move put the spot light on Romney's hidden past and Reid is a former boxer and had the balls to call Romney out and I admire him for it. I think I know who his source is and his source is republican and has nothing to do with the Obama campaign. In fact, his source is connected to one of the few republicans that could have had a chance to win this election.

    Romney is weak ... a pretty boy (former bully) who life was easy and because he was never challenged because his money and status put him around people who simply nodded yes leaving Romney to believe in his own distorted reality.

    Obama is the better man ... resolute intellect, patience and many successes under his belt.

    Newt Gingrich even commented it is unprecedented for a candidate for POTUS to hide millions in foreign countries and have helped foreign corporations earn American dollars and then to help shield them from paying taxes for using our system.

    Harry Reid ... I never paid much attention to him to him before yet now except for voting records on issues.

    Harry Reid ... is badass! He has the rich boy bully by the balls in this one and now Romney has moved to a "war on religion" and is close mouthed on his boasting of financial know it all.
