Poll: Should Mitt Romney Release His Tax Returns Dating Back to 2000?

President Obama's IRS filings since 2000 are a public record, but former Republican Gov. Mitt Romney has disclosed only one.

Pressure is mounting for Mitt Romney to reveal more of his tax returns. His presidential rival, Barack Obama, has made public his filings dating back to 2000. But Republican Romney has disclosed just one year so far: 2010 (he also released an incomplete estimate for 2011). Even if he has nothing to hide, should Romney give up his privacy rights? Or should he meet a higher standard of disclosure as a candidate for the highest office?

More importantly is what that medical waste products business wanted to do with aborted fetuses; sell them commercially for use in the market. So under Romney will will pay young women to get pregnant so we can kill their baby in the womb to sell it on a commodities-type market system to be used in research, or as food products or perhaps we can make really soft handbags for wealthy women from their skin? You think this is normal behavior?

He cannot because he never paid any income taxes on the money choosing instead to use Bain dividends as deferred investment in his children's personal trusts to the tune of 250 million. So he doesn't pay taxes and when he is President, as he has stated, he will eliminate the estate tax so he will have never paid any taxes and neither will his sons on that money. In addition, he owns or controls several offshore hedge funds and reports ZERO INCOME, yeah right, from those enterprises. Romney, in short, believes his wealth puts him above taxes and the law. He cannot release these records as it will prove everything I have said.

watch it Dave expressing such naive and offensive opinions will cause the dude to lecture you on your lack of patriotism, faith and your un-American inability to accept republican propaganda in an unquestioning manner. Don't you know order to be a good American you must not question Romney. When it comes to differences of opinion the dude does NOT abide.

LOL! Yeah and make a statement about the now 37 TRILLION dollars in subsidies, asset purchases, loan guarantees, zero percent interest loans, direct investment and debt cancellations paid for by the taxpayer to date thru the federal reserve and TARP programs and how magically not ONE THIN DIME is trickling down to help the majority and you find rabid-mouthed, fake Republicans know nothing about it? Have no idea what is really going on only what Faux News says?
