I agree with Reid show us your birth certificate already! :-)
"I don't think the burden should be on me," Reid told home-state
reporters. "The burden should be on him. He's the one I've alleged
has not paid any taxes. Why didn't he release his tax returns?"No Senator, the burden doesn't fall on Mr. Romney until you can
substantiate your claims. Otherwise, your just spitting into the wind and
hoping that something sticks. Also, I'm tired of this rhetoric about a tax
return requirement for Cabinet nominees. Romney's not a cabinet member
nominee, he's running for president, and he's done what was initially
asked of him by releasing two-year's worth of returns. I understand why he
doesn't want to release more, because if he gives and inch, then his
opponents will ask for a mile in return.
Now that the so called "affordable" health care bill that Harry Reid and
Nancy Pelosi crammed down our throats with limited study and debate has been
declared to be a "tax" by the Supreme Court,how much will this raise the
tax bill on all of us in the next few years? Answer me that, Harry.
Particularly since we hare already been taxed so that our congress people
already have free medical insurance better than any of the rest of us have.
It seems that Harry Reid is trying to hide something about himself. The only
problem is that everyone with real American moral values can see it already.
Harry Reid is a shill for the left and is know to parrot the mantra when given
the cue. Harry Reid's suggesting that Mitt Romney may have in the past not
been totally on the up and up is propaganda from the Dems, they really have no
basis to impress the electorate.
Harry needs to take a chill pill. I am trying to support the dude
because it takes some guts to be LDS and a Democrat. But really Harry, if you
have proof or compelling evidence, put it forward for us all to see. Otherwise
shut it because your looking as stupid as Trump and Limbaugh and crowd. Do I think Romney is hiding something? Yup. But I am not about to make
accusations about what it is because I have no idea. He is just hiding
something - perhaps not illegal, but probably pretty politically damaging.
So, Harry Reid makes up a charge that he can't begin to substantiate, and
says the burden of proof lies with Romney? And you repeat this on the floor of
the U.S. Senate? Seriously? Good grief, Senator. Say, I've heard
you've been having an affair. Yeah, got a call about it from a friend of
mine. Can't tell you who it is, and I don't have anything substantive,
but the burden of refuting my claim is on you, because you are the one I've
alleged hasn't been faithful. See how it works?
Harry Reid is gossiping. That's not very representative of the Church of
which he is a part. This may yet be one more time that he does not let his
religion, faith, and proclaimed morals to interfere with his political agenda.
How sad. We must forgive him. I wonder if Mr. Romney can have an unbiased
person see his returns and simply disclose that he has seen them and that Mr.
Romney did indeed pay taxes. And then, it seems that an ethics hearing is in
order for Mr. Reid for being the lowest of the lowlifes in participating is
gossip. Remember how Mr. Reid chided those who doubted Mr. Obama's
birthplace and gossiped? Is this the same with the grass calling the lawn
"Remember how Mr. Reid chided those who doubted Mr. Obama's birthplace
and gossiped?"Not exactly the same thing there cinci.Obamas Birth Certificate has been out there for years. It is not like he
chose to NOT release it. It has been out there, verified and still the right
wanted more.On the other hand, Romneys decision to NOT release is
causing him quite a bit of trouble, even with those on the right.Which leads me to believe that what he is hiding is more damaging than his
refusal to release.Very different situations. I think they will
show that he did not break any laws, but the taxes he paid were very very low.
Just a hunch. We may never know.
Harry Reid should worry about the inept Senate he fails to lead! He should worry
about passing a budget just 1 time in 4 years. And Harry Reid should put up his
source or shut up! Harry Reid a GOVERNMENT PAID GOSSIP?Harry Reid ought to have the character to defend attacks against his religion
or is he walking the political fence which is his religion?If there
were issues with Romney's finances the last time around in 2008 or when he
ran for the Senate or when was Governor? What was it?This election
is about 4 things:1. A collapsing economy lead by a deceptive
President.2. Hungry families, woman, children and men who are
citizens of the United States.3. Obama's lies which number in
the hundreds now.4. Corruption in lobbying, government grants,
loans, graff and pay to play politics!P.S. The polling companies
have started polling the 51st to 57th states in Obama's America. Romney is
carrying them all!How Bad Does it Have to Get to Vote Obama Out?
People are starving. American children are hungry! If you live in Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan and Wisconsin please think of them!
Harry Reid is as red a Communist as they come. I make this charge and it is up
to him to prove me wrong.I say this because he obviously fails to
uphold the US Constitution and Federal Laws as he has failed to lead the Senate
and provide a budget for 3 years. So he must be a Communist, or perhaps a
terrorist.I am waiting for his report disproving my accusations.
Harry, like all good soviets, believes the accused is guilty until proven
innocent. I bet he has a photo of uncle joe stalin haning where he can
reverence it frequently.Why are Romney's tax returns even an
issue?They are not - just harry trying to detract attention from the
abysmal failure of the current misadministration and his own ineptidue as senate
majority leader. I used to think no one could be more partisan than
Tom Daschle, then along came harry
Re: "Harry Reid repeats tax accusation . . . ."Poor Harry!
He's been a DNC lapdog for so long, he doesn't even realize he's
now senior enough that he could get away with occasionally telling the truth and
thinking for himself.It shames me to admit I'm among those that
have voted for him in the past. I'm considering moving to Nevada in 2016
long enough to undo that mistake and vote against him.
Obama spent hundreds of millions for vacations. Did he pay taxes on that Harry?
this guy is utterly a joke. he doesn't release his and no one really knows
about his buddy obama. harry is a real trip.
Romney can become richer by publishing a book called "Seven ways to fool the
IRS, and become President".
I wonder what Mitt has to hise. I wonder what is on his tax returns that looks
worse than his not producing themat all (unlike the pattern followed by most
candidates for the White House). His father released 12 yeas of returns when HE
was running for President. Too bad Mitt isn't the man his father was.
Clearly Mr. Romney is under no legal obligation to release the returns, but lets
be real, if he could take political advantage of releasing his returns he would
do so in a minute. Why isn't he releasing them? There is something he
doesn't want the American public to see.If you want to be the
candidate of integrity, then be the candidate of integrity. What President
Obama or any other candidate releases is not relevant. The republicans always
profess to be on a higher moral ground than the democrats, if that is the truth
then release the tax records.
Fred44:"but lets be real?"Did Obama pay taxes on
the millions spent on vacations? Don't we the employer need to see his
college transcript, and application. I'd like to know what information is
on his application.Why did Obama out source eighty percent of our
stimulus? Billions to China and Japan for windmills, and Australia to build a
windmill farm in Texas? Billions more to Finland, and Mexico to build auto
plants. Billions more to the Muslim Brotherhood, and Brazil for off shore oil
drilling.Explain Fred44! You think Romney's tax returns are
more important?Romney's taxes? John McCain verified that
it's clean. Nuff said.
@worfLOL.John McCain looked at Romney's tax returns
and picked Sarah Palin.Nuff said.LOL.
Tax experts, looking at clues from the one tax return Romney released say he
probably paid less tax in 2009. With the economic crisis, he very well
could've had losses in 2008 and 2007, wiping out any tax liability for
those years. Probably the other years are problems because of the investments
he had. Bottom line is, Romney knows his returns would be a
political liability. It is hard for Romney to promote policies of more tax cuts
for the rich when his return illustrates he already pays little income tax. That said, Harry, chill out.
I liked Rush's coverage of this today. Go read the transcript if you missed
it. The James Carville / Ken Starr parody is a perfect example of what the
Democrats are trying to do with Mitt.As for you Harry... how do you
live with yourself? What a hypocrite. Come November you and several
cronies will be flushed out of Congress by a Tea Party / Republican tsunami and
I will be dancing in the streets with a Chick-Fil-A sandwich in one hand and
Romney sign in the other.Hold the line for the Constitution and true
conservative values! Go Mitt!
There You Go Again,McCain is supporting Romney.Obama
should account for the hundreds of millions wasted on Solyndra, and other failed
solar panel companies which our money was wasted on? Obama is currently using
Air Force One, for his campaign trips. Who is paying for this, and what about
the campaign contributions?Only a fool would be so concerned of
Romney's tax returns. Harry Reid:* Thou shalt not
lie* Thou shalt not bear false witness* Shame on you.
Tax avoidance, as I understand it, is perfectly legal. We avoid paying taxes by
filing deductions and other things allowed by law.To evade taxes,
that is illegal.Why do some in our country take Mr. Romney to task
for being successful? Answer: Jealousy and fear that some of the entitlements
may stop. He, you and me...we are all subject to the same tax laws. If he has
complied with the law, then what is the problem? If he has made the tax laws
work in his favor, he is NOT doing anything illegal. As a poster
said a few months ago, some people work for a living...others vote for it!
To worf 11:50 p.m. Aug. 2, 2012There You Go Again,Because of a well-estaablished record of mendaciousness, your statement SHOULD
read:Mitt Romney:* Thou shalt not lie* Thou shalt
not bear false witness* Shame on you.Okay. Statement fixed to
The reality is that Mitt will have to release his tax returns, and if Harry is
right, it will sink the Romney campaign. The implication is that if
Mitt paid virtually no taxes for all those years, it illustrates the Dem's
narrative that "the rich don't pay their fair share of taxes."
Framing Mitt as the poster child of the rich being part of America's woes
is exactly what Mitt is trying to avoid.
Worf,You miss the point, this has NOTHING to do with President
Obama. The far right claim the moral high ground when it comes to honesty and
transparency. If you are going to claim that high ground then put the tax
records out so that Americans can see for themselves that you did nothing wrong.
Mr. Romney is under no legal obligation to do so but why not put this
controversy to rest once and for all?His father set the example of
transparency when he ran for President. I do not believe that Mr. Romney's
tax records will show he broke the law, but I don't think he wants the
public to see the tax loopholes he and the ultra wealthy have at their disposal,
as he pushes for a further lowering taxes on the wealthy. I am sure with this
post according to the far right I just crossed the line and I am now engaging in
class warfare. In the Republican world it is not appropriate to discuss rich
peoples money, how they got it, and how much they pay in taxes.
Reid's comment about Romney making more in one day than most people make it
two years is totally off the mark. Isn't this the land of opportunity and
what made America great. Obama, Reid and his cronies are trying to change this
and are succeeding. If we don't get them out of office things will only
get worse. Ask Mr Reid how much Romney gives away to charities every year and
then ask him how much he and his cronies do. They are all hypocrits. They have
nothing on Romney so they have to spread lies about him. That is all they are
is lies unless they can prove any wrong doing. We really need to kick all those
bums out and start over.
Senator Reid is a statesman of courage in challenging Romney to show how much
tax he pays to support America. Paying taxes is a privilege the same as paying
tithing. It is the cost of civilization and all citizens should be proud to pay
their fair share. If Romney hasn't cheated the nation and the American
people then he shouldn't have any problem releasing his taxes for public
examination, the same as his father did and all the other presidential
Harry Reid where are your tax returns for the last 33 years while in the Senate
and in Government? How have you become a Multi-Millionaire while working for the
public? How?Besides Harry if you and your listeners just looked most
Romney info is available from 2002 and on! It is posted online. Tax Returns for
running for President, disclosure forms(over 500 pages) disclosure forms for 4
years as Governor of Massachuseets and disclosure forms when he ran against
Senator Kennedy. So the info is there even for the following blind Democrats who
take any Reid lie and run with it! Where's your records Harry?
Again, as a Public Servant(That's a Joke) you have become a Millionaire
over and over again!P.S. Just a reminder: VP Joe Biden says were in
a Recession(ABC News:June 27, 2012)
Citizens are concerned with the economy aka their jobs and their extended
families having jobs.With over 40 months of greater than 8% UNEMPLOYMENT I can
already look at Gov. Romney's opportunities in leadership that he made for
his family and extended family aka a strong family, frugal with their money,
very charitable,his job performance in the private sector and as governor, lives
on a budgets from money he earned from working every day, Real Estate
investments, Branded Properties, Managed Properties, Consumer Spending stores
(Consumer Goods)I shop at, Productions etc. He wants US competitvness abroad,
The Banking system moving again, energy development, and Military strength. All
these are far more important than a tax return. Lets follow a leader not an
Demos are scared!I love this stuff.Go Romney!
