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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
