Why 2 Years Of Tax Returns From Mitt Isn’t Enough
‘These business leaders in South Carolina are an important part of our country’s economic engine,’ said Mitt Romney. ‘But they can’t afford four more years of an over-taxing, over-spending, over-regulating Obama Administration.
Tonight during the debate Mitt Romney said that he would release his last two years of tax returns. That is nowhere near enough.
The Romney campaign has tried to paint President Obama as some crazy tax and spender. And let’s be honest about it, it’s not just the Romney campaign, but the entire Republican Party that’s living under the illusion that their taxes have never been higher. But is that true? Of course not, and my theory is that never in Mitt Romney’s life in the top 1% bracket has he ever paid less in taxes.
That’s what I want to see. I want to see the difference between the tax rate Romney paid under Bush, Clinton and Obama and I want to see if the Republican argument that our job creators aren’t job creatin’ is because they are overtaxed.
