Mitt Romney: Cayman Islands Accounts Used By Foreign Investors To 'Not Be Subject To' U.S. Taxes Using an offshore account to avoid taxes is like getting paid in cash and not reporting it to the IRS. It is cheating on your taxes. That's why Mittens jumped at the chance to get amnesty its why, once the IRS was aware of peoples' accounts, it didn't shield taxes any more. That was a nice way to say that people couldn't cheat. Mittens is just a common criminal except that he lies, cheats and steals wit huge amounts of money. Bet those spineless rw's jist kint wait to vote for this scumbag.
