Former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul has joined the steadily increasing drip-drip from the right calling on Mitt Romney to release his tax returns, saying “Politically, I think that would help him. In the scheme of things politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want,” Politico reports.
“It’s a shame. The important issue is [what] the two candidates seem to agree on. They don’t really disagree with militarism overseas, they don’t disagree with the Federal Reserve system and the bailouts, and they don’t disagree on basically whether the role of federal government is wealth redistribution through welfare. So instead, they’re talking about tax returns and that to me is so disappointing,” he said. “It’s all a charade, I think it’s all contrived to not have a debate.” Source: Politico
It’s time for Mitt Romney to just man up and release those tax returns. I don’t believe he broke the law, but he’s making it seem that he has something to hide by dancing around the issue and whining.
