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

    Not "while minimizing his tax exposure". Not "did he count losses against his gains". Did he go a full 10 years without paying taxes.

    I doubt it. I don't think the IRS would let that slide.

    You know when you load the questions, you are going to screw the results.

    Liberals pushing the idea that Romney show should his tax forms and did not pay taxes are no different than the birther tards claiming Obama should show his 'real' birth certificate and that he is not a natural born citizen.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It is quite unlikely that Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. His high income and high profile make it very difficult for any kind of tax evasion to avoid notice. There is no actual evidence that Romney did anything but pay whatever taxes are required by law. I would like him to release his tax forms as a measure of transparency, but Reid's baseless accusations and demands are without merit.

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

    1. we're all speculating here, but my guess is that Romney paid taxes at a lower percentage than all the rest of us because he had the means to shelter every shelterable cent. he's not releasing the records because the amount of sheltering going on would provide the opposition with endless ammunition and would piss off enough people that it could considerably compromise his chances with the middle class. i find it exceptionally unlikely, however, that he paid no taxes.

    2. Reid was an absolute idiot for making the accusation without bring direct evidence to the table, and he did his reputation a real disservice. unfortunately, that's the way this partisan hackery usually ends up, whether it be for an average American of for someone in a leadership role.

    3. anyone pretending that this kind of nonsense is only coming from one side is willfully ignorant. there are entire networks devoted to this strategy.

    the moral of the story is this : yeah, we know you really want your guy to win. that doesn't change the fact that evidence is necessary to support a claim. don't destroy your own credibility because you just know the dude is slimy and eventually some ad hominem mud will stick.

    I think there might be years where romney took advantage of enough loopholes that his taxes were ridiculously low. There is something that romney is hiding and that's why he won't release his tax returns.

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

    I won't actually vote because I think the answers are crap on there. I think most likely he paid taxes every year, but I also think that some years he paid maybe very close to 0 with tax tricks. I do believe there are some embarrassing things in there. What else should you believe when we already know he has off shore accounts and an IRA worth 100 million dollars?
