Romney says two years of tax returns is enough
Mitt Romney has put his foot down. He has no intentions of following the example of his father and releasing many more years of tax returns. Nope, two years is all we are going to get. And if you happen to think that’s not enough, well, then you are a partisan hack.
And here’s what he told CNN’s Acosta:
First of all, we’ve complied with the law. The law requires us to put out a full financial disclosure. That I’ve done. And then, in addition to that, I’ve already put out one year of tax returns. We’ll put out the next year of tax returns as soon as the accountants have that ready. And that’s what we’re going to put out.
I know there will always be calls for more. People always want to get more. And, you know, we’re putting out what is required plus more that is not required. And 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. And, look, if people believe this should be a campaign about attacking one another on a personal basis and go back to the kinds of attacks that were suggested in some campaigns in the past, I don’t want to go there.
