Its actually come to this. Wow just wow. ------------------------------------------------
"In the House, Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) is proposing legislation that would require presidential candidates to release 10 years worth of tax returns and disclose any overseas investments."
How about his social security records? Selective Service records? Passport records? College records? I’d like to see those too.
Awesome. I fully support this.
As long as the legislation also requires full release of birth and college records.
Why bother having elections at all for anything?
We should just have life positions in D.C.
We are almost there anyway...
Well tell Romney to do it.and Obama can release all info..college records, what grants he got, when..and anothe BC would be nice ..maybe a couple more bc’s. He has never had a real job.
Yes, attach an amendment requiring the microfiche of the birth records.
Of course Dems will call this a “poison pill”
Make it mandatory for everyone in Congress and see how it goes over.
I think Romney is playing the left on this like a fiddle. I have a strong feeling there is nothing suspect in his tax returns and they may actually paint him in a good light with high charitable donations and wise investments.
They keep hinting he is hiding something and he is letting them build that to a crescendo. He releases when he is ready and pulls the trigger on talking points about his wise investments and fiscal responsibility.
Stop trying to reason with these aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky radicals and their ideological issue.. all psycho spoiled brats actually.
Stop it already. Tell 'em to F - off and if they don't like that then let's get it over with. Don't leave it for the children.
I am pretty sure you can’t pass legislation aimed at one person. It was a SCOTUS ruling way back when.
Can someone check me on that?
I also fully support this as long as ALL CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS have to do the same.
Without even making mention of Obama, Romney's campaign needs to send a shot across O's AND the media's bow with that followed up with some "staffer" of Romney's being seen walking into Sheriff Joe's office.
Top Ten Things Obama Has Not Released
". . . some key [events] exacerbated the national debate, fraying trust, and national cohesion just a little more each time . . . The two-party system that had governed America . . . begin to fall apart . . . interest in politics took the place of all other forms of news-related entertainment . . . politicians were the celebrities . . . [Politics/ideology] was becoming such a habit, the reactions so automatic, that [journalists] taking sides on every news story became inevitable."
.. from for Love & Liberty by Robin Young and it's about 1857 America.
Also must submit proof of citizenship, birth certificate and make submitting fraudulent documents a serious felony. And make it retroactive to 2000.
Did they clear this with Obama? Going back ten years the SSn on his tax returns might be different.
The RATS are in BIG trouble - and they know it.
Pub’s need to add riders to require original long form birth certificate, all college transcripts and post grad papers.
Then we can talk about current candidates.
They could just ask McCain, he’s got 20 years of Willard returns.
Reid , Peosi and Debbie syph test , have already refused.
Political theater. They don’t have the courage or the desire to carry it out.
I agree something along that line is probably the case. Somehow I don't see the Team Romney managers wringing their hands and asking, Oh, what to do. What to do?, in quavering voices. More like, Target acquired. Readying tax return response. Execute.
How about all Congressional candidate’s records, also. Including taxes, income, collegiate records, papers, etc.
You are speaking of a "bill of attainder", and it is, indeed, unconstitutional, but to be invalidated it must be shown that one, and only one, individual would ever be affected.
"All candidates" is obviously more than one person.
Bernie isn't against fairness, is he?
McCain viewed 23 years of Romney tax returns when considering him as a vice presidential candidate in 2008 but selected Sarah Palin as his running mate instead.
I also believe there is nothing Romney is hiding. I do hope this is a ploy to make the usurper release his information in exchange for Romney’s. This of course will never happen, but it would be a very good move! Trump is pushing for this in the background!
“Make it mandatory for everyone in Congress and see how it goes over.”
It would be like cockroaches scrambling when you shine a flashlight on ‘em.
Hey LevinIdiot, how about legislation aimed at having all future candidates producing authentic birth certificates? /s =.=
Has Sander Levin never heard of ex post facto?
