Mitt Romney has come up with another lame excuse for not releasing his taxes.
Interview with Parade Magazine 8/23/12, Mitt Romney:
One of the downsides of releasing one's financial information is that this is now all public, but we had never intended our contributions to be known. It's a very personal thing between ourselves and our commitment to our God and our church.The problem with this, of course, is that Mitt Romney and his wife have repeatedly claimed, in print and on television, that they give 10% to their church
Parade December 2011
Parade: Do you tithe on a regular basis?But this latest Romney excuse is far better than Ann Romney's reason for not releasing additional tax returns.
Romney: Yes, I've given away 10 percent of what I've earned pretax.
Ann Romney: "It'll just give them more ammunition"63% of Americans think that Mitt Romney needs to release additional tax returns. One partial year and an estimate for another is just not adequate for the President of the USA. Mitt Romney thinks those Americans are small minded. Count me in as one of the small minded Americans who want to see at least 5 full years of Mitt Romney's tax returns.
