What are you hiding Mitt Romney?
That’s the central question everyone wants to know when it comes to Romney’s dealings with his former company Bain Capital and his tax returns, which he has refused to disclose publicly.
Many in his own party are even telling him to just release the documents.
According to Romney, he’s not releasing his returns because of the Democratic opposition researchers, claiming they will find something to twist.
Romney told an NBC Affiliate in Pittsburgh:
"Oh, I think people in my party just say, ‘Look, this is a non-issue, just release the returns and it will all go away.’ My experience is that the Democratic Party these days has approached taxes in a very different way than in the past.
Their opposition people look for anything they can find to distort, to twist, and to try and make negative, and I want to make this a campaign about the economy and creating jobs.
And they want to make this campaign about attacking people and diverting attention from our job picture in this country."
That’s all well and good Romney, but when will you realize that if you continue to hide information from the public, it’ll only get harder to defend?
Ask Herman Cain.
But that’s only one issue; Romney also has offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands, where many rich people send their money to avoid paying a higher tax rate.
Money Mitt has to disclose all and any information when it comes to his tax returns and offshore accounts before he gets tagged as the out of touch rich guy. Then again, it may be too late.
Which is why an investigative exposé by Vanity Fair's Nicholas Shaxson had to break down all of Mitt’s money moving, his days with Bain Capital and his retirement plan.
