    Romney paid his taxes?-The whole point of offshore accounts and shell corporations is to evade paying taxes. There is no other reason to have them.-I wonder if pressure to release his tax returns became great enough, would Romney drop out of the race rather than release those tax returns.

    No, Romney lobbied Congress to lower his taxes — by including Bain profits as “Capital Gains,” which they are not — and hid much of his income overseas to avoid paying taxes.Tell me how paying 15% (compared with the typical American’s 34%) is fair?There’s no “wealth envy” here, there’s UNFAIRNESS!

    Mitt turned over all his records? All one of them.-Romney showed his tax returns to McCain and McCain picked Sarah Palin for vice president. The one time Romney showed his records, it didn’t work out so well for him.

    And Bain revenues do NOT fit that standard. Look it up. That’s why Romney needed to lobby to have it added.

    And how did you feel about Kerry? Are you going to apply the same standards to Romey, or give him a pass because he’s a Republican?

    As Mitt’s TOTAL tax bill (the only one presented, in “short form”) was only 13%, it’s obvious a lot of his capital gains was only taxed at 8%, not 15%. Sorry, but our elected officials, and President, should ONLY invest in “America”, the patriotic thing to do!

    “Romney paid his taxes, didn’t Obama take every deduction he could on the millions he has made while being President?”Tell us, dear Harley, just how many millions of dollars did the President earn since he took office? Please post a link to your factual source.

    Who said anything about patriotism?Never said it helped the country.Did you look at my link about Wasserman-Schultz?You are asking a speculative question to which I or you have no answer to. Besides, I believe it would be illegal to use Super-PAC funds for personal investing.
