    2008/9 was a bad year for a lot of rich people. Stocks fell by about 50%. Wall Street banks went out of business. Collateralized debt obligations became worthless. Real estate cratered. A lot of rich people lost a lot of money.

    Was Romney one of them?

    If he made $0 (or less) he would have paid zero income tax.

    He's said that he paid at least 13%. But a clever man like Romney knows 13% of 0 is $0.

    Is that why he won't release his taxes? Is that what he's hiding?

    Likely. Willard is hiding his taxes like nothing else as he knows if they even say the light of day, he would never have a chance in hell of winning.

    Obama and the dems need to keep hammering Willard on it.

    He probably took a deal with the IRS on untaxed assets overseas and doesn't want people to know he'd be a convicted felon were it not for the good graces of the IRS.

    I wonder if the IRS will be as kind to those that don't buy Obamacare next year. Everybody that has dealt with the IRS knows they are just a bunch of softies.http://www.usmessageboard.com/images/smilies/banghead.gif
