Romney is a legal crook.
His own statements are indicting him. Romney is actually proud that he never paid more than 13% taxes. He doesn’t say he paid any income tax, only that he never paid more than 13% taxes. Maybe Romney paid 13% for capital gains on stocks and no income tax at all? Anyone who does not want to disclose his or her income tax returns has something crooked to hide? To run for President of the United States and not show your taxes should be a disqualification. Do Americans really want someone so arrogant he uses the excuse that if he shows his taxes someone will complain about what he is doing wrong? Romney employs an army of accountants and lawyers to keep from paying taxes for Medicare and Social Security, and then he has the gall to tell those of us who actually pay a higher tax rate that we can’t use our money to help ourselves. Now Romney wants Republicans to make him President and lower his tax rate to .085. Romney is a good example of the American business crook; a businessman or woman who does nothing illegal, but operates on the edge, getting away with everything like a crook. A legal crook, but still a crook. But that is all right with Republicans isn’t it, as long as he is your Republican crook.
