    Mitt Romney’s tax returns are especially relevant when you consider that his own tax reform plan calls for dramatic tax cuts and an end to taxes on capital gains…He has to release his long-term tax situation if he doesn’t want to be accused of legislating in his own best interest.

      Jim: I think you hit the nail on the head here–the American people need to know as much as they can about the candidates\’ finances to determine if the policies they support will be in their own self-interest or in the interest of the country. That\’s what Mitt Romney doesn\’t get yet, and my issue with him is primarily with his economic policies, which were demonstrable failures in the Bush administration.
