    Durbin: Romney needs to release tax returns - CBS News

    DNC head calls Romney to release more tax returns detailing offshore holdings - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    So - if we are SO insistent on transparency from Obama, why not expect the same from Romney.

    Just as soon as Obama releases his college record. By the way has Romney violated the law?

    Romney did release his Tax returns in January, what more do people want? Account numbers? Even in the partisan article it clearly states that Durbin wants "more years of his Tax returns"... Now apply that same request to Obama... And then you will see that your request for transparency, however sly... seems pretty damn hypocritical.

    If Romney released 12 years of tax records you would then want 13 if he released 13 you would be asking for14 the truth is he could never release enough to satisfy the left.

    I completely agree with Durbin and I'm sure the Obama camp has this one waiting in the arsenal to dump on Willard during the debates.

    It's going to pin Willard in the corner perfectly that if he refuses to show them, will come off as a tax dodging POS that has something to hide.

    If he does release them, it will show how much Willard has been hiding his assets overseas and other tricks to dodge taxes, showing he pays likely less than most wage earners.

    Either way it's a win-win for Obama

    Unlike all the people Obama nominated and they had to decline Romney paid his taxes.

    If he already released his Tax returns in January, how exactly is it a win-win for Obama? You don't see the intent of the article is to make people believe Romney never released his returns, Durbin is merely asking for more years of returns... Something which would never be asked of Oblamo. YOU are the exact numbskull the article is pandering to... The ones who wrongfully believe Romney never released his returns. Even Rueters reported that he released them... Romney’s released tax return reveals 13.9% rate, holdings in foreign ‘tax havens’ | The Raw Story
