  •  Tax fairness IS the issue (0+ / 0-)

    The point that democrats need to pound home is that Romney's refusal to release his tax returns is not a side issue - it's a CENTRAL issue. It's a particularly clear-cut case-in-point of a multimillionaire playing by different rules than the rest of us and being proud of it. The ease with which the super-rich hide their money and lower their effective income tax rates is an issue that bears CRITICALLY on the health of the country. The Obama Campaign should hit Romney EVERY TIME his surrogates suggest that it is a side issue. The Obama Campaign should be RELENTLESS in saying to the middle class: "Romney makes 300x what you do; yet he pays half the effective income tax rate that you do? Is that what you think a just society looks like?"
