    Tax Expert Calvin Johnson 'Skeptical' Of Mitt Romney's Taxes

    Crooked and corrupt SOB. What is he hiding and WHY is he hiding it?

    Because, as he has said, if we knew everything, we wouldn't vote for him.

    We'll never know. Republicans don't care enough to look into it and he certainly isn't going to incriminate himself. He should self deport to where he's hiding all of his cash.

    Actually, Romney's position on taxes reflects an understanding of the legislative process that most people don't grasp. He wants to replace nonproductive deductions with a productive reduction in the tax rate. Since any tax changes must be approved by Congress, he would consult with legislators to arrive at a consensus as to which deductions would be limited or eliminated in conjunction with a larger standard deduction.

    The point is that it is economically unproductive for people to make financial decisions based primarily on tax consequences (e.g., tax shelters) rather than the underlying assessment of economic value.
