Mitt Romney released his 2010 tax returns, and says when complete, his 2011 taxes will be all that he makes public. He already released a 2011 estimate of taxes when he filed an extension with the Internal Revenue Service, and Mr. Romney told CNN that the two years are "what we're going to put out…those are the two years that people are going to have."
However, when Mitt Romney was considered as John McCain's running mate in 2008, he released 23 years of tax returns to him. Historically, past presidential candidates have released past tax returns to the public, including Mitt Romney's Father, George Romney, who was a presidential candidate in 1968, and released 12 years of tax returns.
The people have a right to see Mitt Romney's tax returns. If he fails to release them, it appears that he has something to hide, that he doesn't want voters to see. This also presents a question of ethics.
I demand my elected officials pressure Mr. Romney to release his tax returns.
