This is a pretty simple idea that won't take a lot of space to put forward.

In Mitt's fundraising video he slandered nearly half the country, referring to them as, to paraphrase, freeloading moochers who pay no income tax.

Well, I think it's time to renew our demands, to forcefully renew our demands, that Mitt Romney prove he's paid taxes. He is slandering American citizens. He, as a multi-millionaire, is smugly standing there among other millionaires and rudely defaming the poorest (and in my experience, often the hardest working) people in this country.

If he's going to say those people are only looking for a government hand out and use the lie that they "don't pay taxes" as a justification for vilifying them, then he needs to prove that he's paid his. This country needs to demand that Mitt Romney release his tax records immediately, and we need to do it loudly. And we need to never let up until he's either released them or he's lost the election.
