In an interview today Mitt Romney insisted there is nothing "hidden' in his tax returns:
"I don't manage them. I don't even know where they are," Romney said. "That trustee follows all U.S. laws. All the taxes are paid, as appropriate. All of them have been reported to the government. There's nothing hidden there."
So why not release them then, like every other Presidential candidate, including his own father, has? I think that question is even more pertinent given the increased scrutiny Romney is coming under from Democrats. Today Joe Biden hammered on the issue:
“Mitt Romney wants you to show your papers, but he won’t show us his."
Republicans have hounded Barack Obama to release about every single paper associated with his life, including the one that says he was born in the United States. Yet when it comes to Mitt, secrecy is suddenly allowed. Talk about a double standard.
But again I ask, if his taxes are all legal and he's hiding nothing, then why not just release them? The "I don't even know where they are" excuse also doesn't hold water, considering he can get copies from the IRS. So go ahead and get them out there Mitt. That is if what you are saying is true....
