    This from Yahoo!

    The idea that the candidates get to decide what you're allowed to know basically died about 20 years ago (if not sooner).

    The Romneys will learn.

    I could care less about his tax records. Its what he can do for us that matters. We are in crucial times, and obama has dug us into a deep hole. Someone has got to get us outta this mess, and it sure isn't obama. Obama will throw us in the hole and cover it up. Vote obama out!!!!!!!!!!

    Pretty sure that Governor Romney isn't the answer. The tax records would likely settle it once and for all. Look, if you're trying to conect with voters and avail yourself of options not open to them--such as off shore accounts for tax shielding purposes--refusing to come clean about it isn't the way to make that connection. Furthermore, it underlines a portion of the problem; the tax loopholes that even Romney and Ryan say they are going to close.

    Well, this is a big one.

    If there is nothing he's hiding then there is nothing to attack him for....the Romneys don't seem especially bright.

    Wait, If they release more then they will be attacked more by dems?

    Multiple choice question:

    Their tax returns are hiding something..

    a) Good
    b) Bad

    :lol: She pretty much confessed

    He is releasing more today - he says it will show he has paid at minimum 13% every year...and renewed the call for Reid and the WH to put up or shut up.

    As stated.. I would offer to not only release every tax return from youth on up, but all school report cards, driving records, medical records, employee reviews, etc... the minute Obamalama agrees to do the same

    You want transparency, do it all the way... and make it across the board

    as it stands now, there is no law requiring this action
