Mitt Romney has only released 2 years of tax returns thus far. The Governors of Texas, Mississippi and Alabama (all Republican) along with many other prominent Republicans have said that Mitt Romney should release his tax returns. This is not just Democrats anymore.
Mitt Romney has labelled the issue as being a distraction. He has defended his actions stating that "those are the two years that people are going to have and that's all that's necessary for people to understand something about my finances." However seeing as he is running for president, the American people want to know understand more than just "something" his finances. And again i state, this is more than just democrats and republicans and who wins the election. Should Mitt Romney win without having had to release his tax returns it sets a dangerous precedent that flies in the face of all the progress that has been made towards transparency since Mitt Romney's own father, who staunchly believed in being transparent in regards to releasing one's taxes returns. This isn't about who wins, it's about making sure that candidates are held to a certain standard of transparency.
Join this petition to show Mitt Romney that America has fought to raise the standards of transparency and that we are not going to lower our standards for him or anyone else. Show Mitt Romney that the American people want a candidate who will rise to meet our standards, not put them in jeopardy.
