"Did Mitt Romney Take the 2009 Swiss Bank Account Amnesty

...Romney might well have thought in 2007 and 2008 that there was nothing to fear about a non-disclosed offshore account he'd set up years earlier precisely because it wasn't disclosed.

But then came the settlement and the rush of non-disclosers to apply for the amnesty. Failing to apply for the amnesty and then getting charged by the IRS would have been both financially and politically disastrous. So amnesty it was. But even though the amnesty would eliminate any legal or financial liability for past acts, it would hardly eliminate political liability. "

Everyday in so many ways WimpRomney looks like a CRIMINAL.

Guess why Mitt Gaffney couldn't go to Italy on his world tour?

Bain did a deal with them a few years back and Bain not only bought a company there at a very low price but they then turned around and sold it for 25 times what they paid which would be great for Italy (and America) because they would get the tax revenues but alas, Romney and Bain funneled the money through Eastern Europe to avoid the taxes.

He really does love America but not enough to pay his fair share.

PLEASE don't think all American Democrats are sleazy pieces of trash just because of Reid and Pelosi. Like most mentally and emotionally defective Bully's they don't back up their statements.

Obama must be in real trouble if the Obama people have to make stuff up. Before the Obama people are done, no fair minded, well parented, American will even admit to BEING a Democrat let alone voting for one.

All Mitt Gaffney has to
do is produce one or two years of his taxes.
The longer he postpones the inevitable, the
worse the rumors will get. He and his
staff are just too stubborn and stupid
to do the obvious thing.

You may not like Harry but he is a genius.
He knew just how to taunt them and here we
are, one week later, still talking about it.
Genius.

Speaking of MSNBC, this morning they were talking about who should speak at the RNC. Sarah Palin's name came up and when asked to respond about Palin speaking at the convention, the guest asked "Speak at Comicon? OMG, I'm going to use that one.

A cabal of landlords forms a political action committee to exercise their First Amendment rights to support candidates who will advance their agenda.

Although the cabal has cash galore, the landlords can't give the money away because candidates are barred from accepting large donations. So the cabal sets up a "political consulting business" and provides the candidates with all the services they can use for free or at cut rates.

City Hall would echo with outrage that the nefarious cabal had conspired to steal elections by trashing New York's stringent public campaign financing rules. So how come no one seems particularly upset that such a plot has just been uncovered?

Perhaps because the actors were not evil landlords but the leadership of the Working Families Party, a union-backed organization whose endorsements are sought after by mainstream Democrats. Let them not bite the hand that feeds them.

The party set up a supposedly profit-making business that supplies services like contact lists and manpower to turn out the vote. The candidates, it is said, pay market rates for the help.

There are two problems. First, the party and the company are one and the same - same address, same employees, same bosses. Second, the party does a lot more to help its candidates. Which the party is entitled to do as long as it acts independently of the candidate - or as long as the value of its assistance stays within strict donation guidelines.

Neither of those appears to be the case, signaling that the Working Families Party has likely funneled big unreported contributions to candidates, most prominently public advocate contender Councilman Bill de Blasio.

Kudos to the Campaign Finance Board for blowing the whistle on this scam. The panel must now closely police the party's actions in the runup to the Sept. 15 Democratic primary. And then the board must audit all the campaigns to find out which among them took public financing under fraudulent pretenses. The penalties for any violations must be severe...

Just imagine if this was a Republican Scam????
Thanks once again to the Obama Controlled Media
system we now have it was supressed/buried /

Judicial Watch has uncovered documents showing that, rather than taking action to enforce Section 8 of the NVRA, the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) is now working with ACORN-front Project Vote, Barack Obama’s former employer, to push for strict enforcement of Section 7 of the NVRA relating to welfare office voter registration obligations. The purpose of this campaign is evidently to use voter registration laws to register greater numbers of low-income voters, widely considered to be an important voting demographic for the Obama presidential campaign.

Policy changes prompted by stricter enforcement of Section 7 have resulted in increased incidents of voter registration errors. For example, a separate Judicial Watch investigation found that the percentage of invalid voter registration forms from Colorado public assistance agencies was four times the national average after Project Vote successfully forced the state to implement new policies for increasing the registration of public assistance recipients during the 2008 and 2010 election seasons.

Judicial Watch notes in its letters that while Attorney General Eric Holder appears intent on enforcing Section 7 of the NVRA, which will yield an increased risk of voter fraud, he apparently has no interest in enforcing Section 8 to ensure clean elections:“While you may be aware that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has prioritized enforcement of Section 7 of the NVRA, which seeks to expand opportunities to register to vote, the Attorney General has not demonstrated any similar interest in prioritizing enforcement of the list maintenance provisions of Section 8 of the NVRA. Nonetheless, Section 8 is an important counterpart to Section 7. The two provisions represent a carefully crafted compromise by the U.S. Congress to increase both voter registration and the integrity of voter rolls.”

"President Barack Obama derided Republican rival Mitt Romney's tax plan on Monday as Robin Hood in reverse - "Romney Hood " - saying it essentially would rob ordinary Americans to help the rich." CT

True.

TaxHider Romney would INCREASE TAXES by $2,000 per average family for the middle class but cut his own and that of his Koch buddies.

"Did Mitt Romney Take the 2009 Swiss Bank Account Amnesty

...

When attempting to engage in baseless speculation over what it is that's in Mitt Romney's tax statements that's so embarassing he'd rather take the heat for non-disclosure, I think it's important to remember that he was actively running for president in 2007 and 2008. That means it's relatively unlike he was doing anything during those years that he thought couldn't withstand scrutiny. So why not release a nice even five years of tax data? Perhaps because of something that happened in 2009.

Something like this:

Wealthy U.S. taxpayers, concerned about an Internal Revenue Service crackdown on the use of secret overseas bank accounts as tax havens, are rushing to meet a Thursday deadline to disclose those accounts or face possible criminal prosecution. The concern was triggered this summer when Switzerland's largest bank, caught up in an international tax evasion dispute, said it would disclose the names of more than 4,000 of its U.S. account holders."

slate

Did Tricky Mitt Romney evade taxes in Swiss bank accounts? Did he get the amnesty from the IRS?

What in the hell is the sleaze bag hiding?

Ryan took $40 BILLION of your tax dollars in order to make himself a multimillionaire while being a government employee.

Ryan traded on inside information during the financial crisis in order to make himself richer while being a government employee.

Ryan, who echoes Hitler, is incredibly ambitious and sees himself as President of the USA for LIFE. This is what is in his autobiography and why his God is Ayn Rand, Sociopath.

Oh yeah, Obama did not take anything from Medicare. He is reducing ITS GROWTH by tackling waste, fraud and abuse. That does not, of course, prevent Ryan/Romney/AntiChrist 2012 from pathologically lying about it.

Oh yeah, Ryan is lying TO YOU. You are such an easybendoverslut.

Ryan's plan KILLS MEDICARE TODAY. It defunds Medicare to the point that it is destroyed IMMEDIATELY.

The 10 year plan is total BS and Ryan knows it. That is why it is put there to make seniors think it only affects their children and grandchildren and not them.

Total BS.

Ryan KILL MEDICARE TODAY. Today's seniors will get a 40% increase in health care costs IF, big IF, they can actually afford any insurance at all.

Ryan/Romney/AntiChrist 2012: get ready seniors for $2K/month in premiums and $50,000 annual deductibles.

This is remarkable in its venality. If you do not have enough money you cannot go to the Mormon welfare store that your tithes have paid for unless you first tithe money that is meant for things like rent and medicine for babies.

Despicable.

"So here is the procedure for a member of the Mormon Church to receive welfare assistance from the Church’s welfare program.

1. Consolidate your bills, and pay them in priority with respect to order of need. Normally, first on the list would be the payment of tithing and fast offering.

Next, the essential monthly payments–rent, utilities, insurance, existing outstanding debts, etc. Let’s assume that there is sufficient income to pay for all the bills but the phone bill. Next we make an estimate of what our monthly food bill would be. The phone bill and the food bill would be our deficit. "

Pathological liar and probable FELON Mitt Romney is still hated by the majority of Americans...even Republiscum.

"They built this Romney!

“We built it” is one of the themes here, at the government-underwritten convention in a government-subsidized convention center in a city that rose on the sturdy foundation of government-subsidized flood insurance. But no taxpayer dollars were expended in the attempt to put together a New Mitt.

None. Really, it was just private corporations and rich people. " NYT

This is so true. Republiscum are childish morons living with their heads in the ground and their fat asses in the air waiting for the billionaires who own the GOPUX.

"I don't want to waste another second thinking about Todd Akin, and his theory that you can't get pregnant unless your eggs are asking for it. Here's the only thing you need to know about Todd Akin and human anatomy: he's an asshole.

What I want to talk about is how it's not a coincidence that the party of fundamentalism is also the party of fantasy. When I say religion is a mental illness, this is what I mean: it corrodes your mental faculties to the point where you can believe in tiny ninja warriors who hide in vaginas and lie in wait for bad people's sperm.

Evangelicals might like to pretend that the magical thinking that they indulge in at home doesn't affect what they do at the office, but it absolutely does. The brain that believes in angels and miracles and Jesus riding a dinosaur is trained to see the world not as it is, but as you want it to be.

Republicans would like to pretend like Congressman Akin's substitution of superstition for science is a lone problem but it's not: they're all magical thinkers, on nearly every issue. They don't get their answers on climate change from climatologists, they get them from the Book of Genesis. Hence Sharia Law in America is a dire threat, and global warming a hoax.

Or take the issue that consumes the right these days, our sea of red ink: Republicans are united in their fervent desire to reduce the deficit, but they want to do it in some magical fashion that doesn't involve raising taxes or cutting any spending.

When given a choice in polls between these two options, a majority of Republicans check "none of the above" as a way to reduce the deficit. That's like deciding to pay off your student loans by daydreaming. " BM
