Tonight on 60 Minutes Paul Ryan admitted that he has released “several years of tax returns during the VP vetting process. Mitt Romney, however has released a measley 1 year, 2010 and it wasn’t complete.
If Mitt Romney needed to examine several years of tax returns to determine whether Paul Ryan was qualified to be Vice President, why won’t he let the American people see his own returns and determine if he himself is qualified to be President?
SCHIEFFER: How many years of tax returns did you turn over to the campaign?
RYAN: It was a very exhaustive vetting process. It’s a confidential vetting process, so there were several years.
WASHINGTON — Rep. Paul Ryan says he will only release two years of his tax returns — the same amount Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has agreed to release.
Romney’s running mate says voters are concerned about the economy, not tax returns. He says the focus on the candidates’ tax returns is a distraction from President Barack Obama’s record.
Ryan tells CBS’ “60 Minutes” that he and Romney will focus on what it takes to turn the country around.
Romney has been criticized for refusing to turn over more tax returns. Romney has released one year so far and vowed to release this year’s returns when they are ready.
A Romney adviser says Ryan gave the campaign “several” years of tax returns when he was being vetted, but wouldn’t specify how many.
And POOR T-PAW
Does Mitt Romney think that requesting A BUNCH of TAX RETURNS from his VP picks ABSOLVES him from releasing his?
Romney has stated that he will release his 2011 TAX RETURNS (AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN DOCTORED), and that’s it.
“YOU PEOPLE” have seen all you’re go to see. That’s it. How’s my imppression of Miss Ann?
AND A MITT ROMNEY 60 MINUTE WTF MOMENT! BWA HA HA HAAAAAAAA
In Awkward Moment, Ryan Says He Wants To Eliminate Tax Shelters That People Like Romney Enjoy
RYAN: What we’re saying is, take away the tax shelters that are uniquely enjoyed by people in the top tax brackets so they can’t shelter as much money from taxation, should lower tax rates for everybody to make America more competitive.
Romney: Say WUH?!! Keep the popcorn fresh and hot, and lotsa butta please!
Remember SON OF BOSS & Romney served as a director of marriott International and chaired the audit committee WHILE THE COMPANY “Repeatedly Utilized Complex Tax-Avoidance Maneuvers”
Repost of Tax Experts Peter Canellos And Edward Kleinbard’s CNN Piece: “A Key Troubling Public Manifestation Of Romney’s Apparent Insensitivity To Tax Obligations Is His Role In Marriott International’s Abusive Tax Shelter Activity.” “Mitt Romney’s refusal to release tax returns in the critical years of his income accumulation has done little to dispel the legitimate concern that arises from hints buried in his scant disclosure to date: Did he augment his wealth through highly aggressive tax stratagems of questionable validity? One relevant line of inquiry, largely ignored so far, is to examine what exists in the public record regarding his attitude toward tax compliance and tax avoidance. While this examination is hampered because his dealings through his private equity company, Bain Capital, are kept shrouded, there are other indicators. A key troubling public manifestation of Romney’s apparent insensitivity to tax obligations is his role in Marriott International’s abusive tax shelter activity.”
