Taxes are central to this election.....the economy is at the forefront of the populations concerns.....That being said for the last year we have seen
a wave of protests against the 1% getting over. Not because it is against the law, but because they have molded the law to fit them.
In 2009, there was a push by the US to get oversea banks to release their documents...especially american investors hiding funds in numbered accounts.
This was a big deal but got quickly push to the back burner. It made news for about a week, and I never heard anything more about it.
During that time, there was a big announcement, amnesty for those with money offshore, 'come clean, pay what you owe, and we will keep
quiet.'....Does anyone remember this? So when Reid stated that Romney didn't pay taxes for years, he was probably accurate, meaning that Romney had
such a spectacular crew that hid money or exempted money to actually not have to owe a single dollar back to the US government. In fact, he probably
got a refund, as some of our larger companies see.
The opposite side is probably true as well, that when Romney stated, 'I paid everything I owed.'....holds true as well, when he and his cohorts got
together, he was looking at the presidential run again. With the new information that the oversea banks were caving and he couldn't hide his money
anymore, he threw his hands up and pulled the IRS in. 'Ok boys, here is what i have, what do i owe?'. all of this was done as most settlements are
done, in confidentiality. Hence the reason he is willing to release the last two years, 2011 & 2010, not 2009 or before because then it would be
clear that he was either hiding or had come to that settlement.
So with this logic, both Reid and Romney are correct, Romney paid everything he owed, and Romney didn't pay tax for years. If both are correct this
is not a bonus for the real life Gordon Gekko.
