Section 6103(f) of the Internal Revenue Code expressly permits inspection of returns by the House Ways and Means Committee, Senate Finance Committee, and Joint Committee on Taxation, and also permits inspection by any select Committee of Senate or House, or joint committee authorized by legislative resolution to investigate returns. [...]
The Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee is expressly authorized to request any tax return. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue is required to comply with a request for specific tax returns from any of those designated with that authority under the section 6103(f) statute. The ease with which the Romney returns can be requested from the IRS from an authorized source under section 6103(f) makes it the likely that those tax returns are under review by that authorized source, in the opinion of Tax Attorney Alvin S. Brown. Mr. Brown speculates that the allegations that Governor Romney did not pay taxes for a 10 year period may be valid in part based on the ease of access for those returns by a host of members of Congress, including Senator Reid. Mr. Brown notes also that the attribution for that information from a Bain informant may not be accurate. Mr. Brown suggests that public knowledge that the tax returns of Governor Romney were requested by a person authorized to receive those tax returns would likely be perceived by the public and the media as an unfair breach of trust.
At this point it’s more important that Harry Reid made a smart political move by putting Lyin Mitt’s tax returns front and center for several more news cycles just as interest was beginning to wane. Attention to the inequities in our tax code and the coddling of the wealthy at the expense of the poor and middle class are more important than the rumors. But if it took a rumor to alert a sleepy electorate to who Romney is, so be it.
Reid can take the heat (in fact, he relishes it), but Mitt can’t. His dodges and weaves, nervous laughter and lies speak volumes about his (lack of) character. Voters need to become aware of that and much more before November.
Lets not forget who Lyin Mitt Romney really is:
Romney Would Knock the Wind Out of Iowa’s Economy
Here in Iowa, we’re number one in wind energy jobs. But thousands of those jobs could be at risk.
That’s why everyone from President Obama to Governor Branstad, and both Iowa Senators, support extending the wind energy tax credit.
But not Mitt Romney. He’d raise taxes on wind energy, protecting tax breaks for oil companies and millionaires instead. Romney would jeopardize thousands of jobs and knock the wind out of Iowa’s economy.
Lyin Mitt is dishonest and a sneaky Lyin two-faced greedy millionaire:
“Blatant” – Obama for America TV Ad
Get the facts: http://OFA.BO/gsqohF
“Seen this? Mitt Romney claiming the President would end welfare reform’s work requirements?”
“The New York Times calls it ‘blatantly false’.”
“The Washington Post says, ‘the Obama administration is not removing the bill’s work requirements at all.’”
“In fact Obama’s getting states to move 20% more people from welfare to work.”
“And President Clinton‘s reaction to the Romney ad?”
“It’s just not true.”
