It is no secret about Romney's Cayman Island and Swiss Bank accounts and he paid less than 15% on the two years of tax returns he produced.
Several people including Senate minority leader Reed say he paid no taxes for a 10 year period of time. Why does Romney just release two years tax returns and not any more?What is he hiding? For a man that wants to be president he needs to do what others have done and release those years in question.

Would you vote for a rich guy that has Cayman Island offshore accounts and Swiss Accounts and paid 0 taxes on his billions! More tax breaks for the rich and more trickle down only it don't trickle down. They stick the money in Swiss Bank accounts and pay no taxes on it instead of creating jobs as they claim.

First, let's see what Obama's hiding. He wont let anyone see his college records or his college records or his application. He won't release his college thesis. He won't release hospital records from the hospital of his birth that would corroborate his birth certificate.

He's spent millions to prevent their release.

Get him to release all that first and then get back with us on that Romney request.

Thanks!

I would not give them. He has done nothing illegal. Everything he did was legal. My Dad has an account in the Cayman's. My family does international business. It makes life easier to transfer money to Mexico for payroll. I am not trilled about Romney and I don't like Obama. On the amount payed, again he broke no laws. When you have a medium to large Business you pay corporate taxes. It comes off of the top. Then you pay yourself. So If you own the company. The tax between the two is quite large. He pays more that his income tax suggest.

Romney was against the Auto Bailout, he was all for the bailout of his fat cat Wall Street firms that destroyed the economy but not for an industry that would employ thousands.

Obama will always have that, Obama bailed out the auto industry and they are thriving now, Romney would have let them fail and thousands would have lost their job!

Plus Obama got Bin Ladin....lol

Definition of Trickle down, Rich man pissing down your back and telling you it's raining. You want to grovel for the crumbs that fall from the corporate table, and that would now be the communist chinese table cause they gave the cake to them.

You commy sucking dumbazz wanna be, you ain't got the money to be a republican or the sense to be a democrat! GD middle class and working class built this country, the corporations went to outsourcing for cheap labor and sold out the working and middle class. The top 30 corporations did not pay one dime in tax last year, who in the hell do you think keeps this place propped up. They pay no tax on what they produce overseas! I hope you lose your check you poser and have to go out and beg your corporate masters for a minimum wage job with no benefits!
Good Luck

If you profit never comes back to america it is not a haven. Basically they are using these business out of the country where they can turn a higher profit. Due to relaxed rules. If America keeps up the class attacks the rich will simply leave. Look at Zuckerburn the Facebook guy. He has left completely. The big casino baron Steve Wynn is pulling out to Taiwan soon. Why? to make more money. We need to attract and keep these people here to create jobs here. Quit running them off. Tax the Rich is stupid. Tax everyone the same works

AND" the BUSINESS: THAT THEY" LEFT BEHIND, TODAY: still EMPLOY'S SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND POOR PEOPLE. AND" this can be proven, to be an absolute fact. NOW" did I" get rich from that: NO" BUT" I" and my family had a wonderful life: never missed a meal in 53 year. never had a bill that I" could not pay immediately. TODAY" I" own three homes paid for: A YARD: full of CAR's. AND" MONEY in the BANK. ALL" because: THAT RICH MAN" 53 year ago, HAD A JOB: to offer ME, FOR $1.35 an hour.

agree with you" 100 percent. 98 percent of the dumb ass people out here does not realize, that their own federal government, all big business's, the democrat's the republican's, are all equally responsible, for the mess out here today, it was a well planned thing by them all.

in the 1990's the DEMOCRATS' pushed this FREE TRADE thing: setting up the beginning, of a way" for all big business's to move off shore, and still have access to the market here in this country, with out paying one dime sur tax, while THEY escaped paying a decent wage to their workers. SO" this thing about destroying the middle class, is not just a Republican thing, and did not just start a few years ago. it has been working it's way toward that for the last 15 years.

take a look" a how your federal government, the Democrat's, the Republican's, and all in the seat of authority, HAVE ABSOLUTELY REFUSED, to do any ting about the probably 20 million illegal mexican's, or the 50 million mexican;s that poured into this country in the last few year's. WHY" have they ALL refused to stop it. they have your dumb ass's thinking it is about a voting issue.

WHILE' all the time: it is about" destroying this high wage factor for BIG BUSINESS, by" having so dam many people in the JOB MARKET, that BIG BUSINESS, can pay just about what ever wage they please, and if a regular american will not take it, A WET BACK WILL. WHILE' they never lower the PRICE OF ANY THING. THIS SHOULD BE NO NEW NEWS, to any of you. congress" the senate" the Democrat's, the Rpublican's, the WHITE HOUSE, BIG BUSINESS, THEY ARE ALL YOUR MORTAL ENEMY'S. they are all guilty on the same level.

First of all, Romney pays more in overall taxes than most people reading this. He may have paid less percentage in his income tax, but he still pays a higher percentage property taxes, luxury taxes, school taxes and so on. Don't believe everything you see on CNN or any other news cast. The news only shows you a fraction of the truth.
It all depends on how you get your money. He may not earn most of his money working a job than other sources. For example, let's look at Warren Buffet. Now a while back people were complaining and Mr. Buffet even said it himself, that his secretary paid more income tax than he did. Well, of course she does. She works for a living. Mr. Buffet does not work for a living. In fact, Mr. Buffet does not pay an income tax at all. But Mr. Buffet does pay a capital gains tax. Now Mr. Buffet, just like Romney, pays a higher percentage in all around taxes than his secretary. But CNN does not tell you about all the other taxes, they only concentrate on one type of tax.

Why such an attack on the rich. Obama wants you to believe that the rich do not pay their fair share. But he is wrong. According the Tax Foundation in 2010 the top 3% earners paid 38% of the taxes in this country. Look at that closely. The top 3% earners, people that work and pay income taxes, paid 38% of al taxes in this country. How then, can President Obama say that the rich don't pay their fair share? And he wants to raise their taxes more.

Like it or not, the rich earn their way in this Country. What do you think will happen if we raise taxes in this country? There will be jobs lost. And can we afford to lose more jobs in this economy? You don't think it would happen? Well, tell me than, who does the most hiring in this country? The poor or the rich? How many people reading this have ever worked for a poor person? If you raise taxes on the rich, the people who hire people and own the companies, they will not be able to hire more people and will likely have to lay off people. Still don't believe it? Is there any example in the history of this country that proves raising taxes causes job loss?

Yes there is. In the early 1990's congress decided to put a yacht tax, a 10% excise tax, on all yachts costing $100,000 and more. Well, guess what happened? There was a 42% decline in sales. Thousands of people lost their jobs and many yacht companies went out of business. Yeah, that sounds like a plan for this economy.

Actually, raising the tax on the rich is a communistic idea. It goes back to Karl Marx who wrote in the communistic manifesto that there should be no differential classes in society. All should be the same. If someone acquired more money than someone else then the government should cease that money and spread the money to the lower classes. Obama is a practicing Marxist.

No, Romney should not have to produce more tax returns because it is not a true indicator at the complete taxes that he pays. In fact, it should be no ones business at how much he makes. And as for investing over seas, well, the government is creating an atmosphere where it is better to invest over seas, than in this country. Why jump on Romney when he is not the only one doing it. This country need to get back in shape and pass laws that encourage investing here in our own country
