    Romney should put money in U.S. banks

    I’m truly amazed that Mitt Romney has not been asked that, if he indeed wants to be the next president, specifically to support both small and large businesses, when will he be bringing his millions back into the U.S. to be placed in a U.S. bank so that American businesses can borrow his money to start or expand their products or services.
    American banks finance American companies! I wonder how many Swiss companies are presently using his “hard-earned money” to support a Swiss business. If he were “pro” American, why in the world would he send his fortune out of the country in the first place?

    Most million/billionaires have their money offshore. This is just a fact of life.

    WHO THE FUCK WANTS TO PAY THE CORPERATE TAX?

    TELL MITT ROMNEY; BRING YOUR OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS BACK TO THE USA.

    Mitt Romney has invested his money around the world, from the Cayman Islands to Ireland to Australia. We don’t know if he’s using these accounts to avoid paying his fair share in taxes, but we do know that in 2010, Romney’s tax rate was a startlingly low 13.9%. This means Romney pays a lower tax rate than many teachers, firefighters, police officers, and other middle-class Americans—even a lower rate than most other millionaires.
    If elected, Romney’s proposed tax plan would cut tax rates for the wealthy even further—cutting his own taxes and protecting loopholes that he benefits from. At the same time, he opposes the President’s Buffett Rule, which would require millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share. That’s not right.
    Tell Mitt Romney: Bring your offshore accounts back to the USA — Barack Obama

    Excellent question. What would happen to the U.S. Banking system if we all put our money in foreign banks?

    If Romney will put his money anywhere but here. What does that tell you about our tax rates? It's called making money.

    Romney has more money in US banks, Has paid more in US taxes, and Contributed more to the US economy than you and 100 of your closest Liberal Friends could dream of doing in a life time.

    You are Pathetic.

    Who in the hell would put all of their money into the U.S. banking system?

    "LilOlLady" needs to do some research on U.S. bank failures and on huge banks that are teetering on insolvency (like Bank Of America and Wells Fargo).

    I wonder where Obama keeps his MILLIONS of dollars.....................

    Where the Money Lives





    For all Mitt Romney’s touting of his business record, when it comes to his own money the Republican nominee is remarkably shy about disclosing numbers and investments. Nicholas Shaxson delves into the murky world of offshore finance, revealing loopholes that allow the very wealthy to skirt tax laws, and investigating just how much of Romney’s fortune (with $30 million in Bain Capital funds in the Cayman Islands alone?) looks pretty strange for a presidential candidate.

    As Newt Gingrich put it during the primary season, “I don’t know of any American president who has had a Swiss bank account.” Investigation: Mitt Romney’s Offshore Accounts, Tax Loopholes, and Mysterious I.R.A. | Vanity Fair

    American banks don't need money to lend, they have over $1 trillion sitting as excess reserves at the Fed.
    American banks need an administration that doesn't want to kill the banks and American businesses.
