    My son just entered his freshman year at the U of Missouri. He is getting no student loans, Pell Grants or any other assisstance other than academic scholarship. The admissions office at this state university requested tax returns, voter registration, copies of my property tax reciepts, drivers license and other things from me. Why I have no idea

    Call me old fashioned, but I feel that the govt is to serve the citizens not vice versa. In that light, I feel if they can ask me for my tax returns so my son can go to a state school that is supported by my taxes {and now tuition} I kinda feel like someone who wants to run for POTUS should be required to release at least that much

    I would also wonder why Mr Romney wouldn't willingly embrace Transparency
    Im not buying Bon's logic in post 22 where he says this is just a Democratic ploy to make him release his tax returns so they could paint him as a wealthy man. I think that horse is already out of the barn Bon

    But with actual numbers it opens up everything to everyone.....think of it this way,say for example Mitt was able to deduct some outlandish expense (but perfectly legal) like depreciation on the west coast home in San Diego...how much does that enflame joe Public that is about to get his home foreclosed in Ohio....we could take anyone's tax return and scrutinize it,but just because you or I may have a more creative accountant or one more familiar with the tax code, it may seem illegal to the uninformed...

    The BHO campaign is changing the narrative, they cant run on the incumbent record of POTUS, they cant attack the Romney character because he doesnt have that chink in his armor, so you attack his wealth and make him so hated by those less fortunate..

    Its already working, they have you examining how in the heck he could have amassed an IRA of such epic proportions....do you think Mitt does his own taxes ? Hardly...he could single handedly keep an accounting firm in the money with his account alone...he is stinking filthy rich, certainly richer that John Kerry (since that money was all his wife's ) same with McCain...

    I am not opposed to Mitt showing his records, but lets play on an even level..you show me BHO's records from Harvard,Columbia, and Occidental College, and Mitt shows his from BYU and Harvard....

    I find it somewhat amusing that the secular progressives want you to vote for a guy that has trashed what little economy was left over a mean horrible guy who actually knows how to work economics.

    Guy #1--$13 trillion debt
    Guy #2--$100 million in the bank


    Splain how guy #1 is better to handle my finances???


    Just askin'...........

    It occurs to me ... has BHO released 10 years of his tax returns? or Biden?

    We know that Pelosi refuses to do so, saying that she would do so if she were running for President. Has Reid released his tax returns in each year he has been re-elected?

    When was the last time a Pres nominee opened 10 years of tax returns?

    I would agree with an earlier post that a high-profile figure like Romney would have had the IRS closely scrutinizing his returns over the years. All the wealthy Obama supporters have taken a similar position: they will pay only the taxes that they MUST, not any more. If some of these very wealthy people use tax law to avoid paying higher taxes, it is not the fault of the people who abide by the law, it is the flaw of the law itself.

    I posted the link on another thread. Not only did they released returns, they posted them up onto the internet so anyone can download them and look through them. There are at the following link:

    I sure as heck don't do my own taxes. But when I sign them and send them to the IRS, I am taking full responsibility for what my CPA did. So, the buck stops with me...

    Do any of you mental-midgets actually believe Mitt Romney hasn't paid taxes in 10 years if he owed taxes? A while back one of you left-wing dummies told me to stop belly aching over an issue well the same should be said here. Come on this is the left doing what is does best (actually nothing) except stirring up class envy, promoting hate, etc. You guys are sickening!!!

    Obama sends his munchkins in to spread these nasty rumors. He plays dirty His true colors come shining thru. Don't look at what's going on with your country and what I've done to it instead look over There are people out there that believe this stuff that's what's so sad he has them under his spell if anyone really opened their eyes and looked at what Obama has done, the lies he has told no one would want him.

    The deficit is $1.3trillion up $4.5 billion from last year. Please learn how to count your Zeros. Spending in absolute dollars is down $600 billion. All this done with a smaller economy.

    I'm pretty sure Mitt does not want folks to see his creative accounting. I'm sure the right's view is he is brilliant since he figured out how not to pay taxes, while the working right gets a health chunk taken from their checks every pay period.

    You two are talking apples and oranges.

    Debt and deficit are two different things.

    Deficit is not 13 trillion...
