  •  Mitts taxes? (4+ / 0-)

    He pays taxes?  Shocking.

    In reality, I'm next to certain that he doesn't even begin to pay the kinds of taxes that the rest of us pay, but I doubt that's the reason he's not going to release them.  

    He, like other 1%rs, feels no shame at using the government services, infrastructure, and other things that taxpayers fund.  The 1%rs love those things.  They just want the rest of us to pay for them.

    Likely the real reason is that he doesn't want people to know how much he donates to the Mormon Church as a tax-deduction.  It's mandatory to give 10% of your income if you're Mormon.  The amount he gives is probably staggering.  And that will add fuel to the anti-Mormon fervor among Republican voters.

    Just my take on his refusal.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
