Burton J. Simpson’s letter, “Reid should put up or shut up,” seems to lack reasoning. If Mitt Romney wants to end the controversy over his income taxes, he should show his prior filings.
What does he have to hide? Why does an effective businessman, which Romney claims to be, need to delay until October to file his 2011 return? Is he trying to alter his finances to appear less controversial? Wouldn’t you like to know how to legally accrue $100 million in a tax deferred account with a cap of $6,000 too?
If his money had been invested in U.S. banks, how many jobs could have been created? His actions appear to be about greed and deceptions, not characteristics worthy of being our president. Clearly Romney is the one who should put up or shut up.
