    Very technical and detailed article that shows how Romney tried to screw the American people.

    From Wiki:

    Son of BOSS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This is the type of scheme that totally screwed us over in the early 2000s.

    This stuff is so complex and shaky that I am starting to feel like tax avoidance is nothing more than a sport to these people.

    It certainly is what Bain specialized in. But in laymans terms, what Son of BOSS shelters did, was create paper losses, which had no business or financial impact on a company, and done solely to reduce their tax liability. In other words, it's a sham.

    So please post accounts of Romney being convicted for illegal activity regarding these tax issues. I'll wait.

    The point is still that the scheme was used and was punished, and Romney was the director of the audit committee. The result was that Marriott was forced to pay the tax, interest, and penalties and fines. That doesn't happen unless you're trying to do something illegal.

    If he used tax loopholes it's not his fault. His job was to make companies profitable, and if government loopholes where there to be used, then good for him. He didn't do anything different than any other company executive out there did. And you can bet your ass Obama would have done the same thing had he been in the same position.
