Mitt Romney's other tax secret

New York (CNNMoney) - It has become clear that Mitt Romney does not want to release any additional tax returns.

But that's not the only tax issue the presumptive nominee has been reluctant to talk about. He has been equally quiet on a policy question that could have a direct impact on the amount of taxes paid by millions of Americans.

    This country has always had a system that uses taxes to run the government of the people. Many super rich citizens have found ways to "hide" their money so our government "of the people" cannot touch their money. This has always been considedred "cheating" and in many cases illigal. We should want a commander-in-chief that would follow the rules like us citizens. Romney is obviously hiding his money so the government that he wants to run can't use a portion of it. Imagine if we, the common citizen did this. Imagine if Obama was doing this. Both parties should be demanding Romney release several years of tax info. so we can all see if he has considered himself above the laws that he expects us to follow. Or, maybe we should all start stashing money under our beds and cheating too.

    Mitt Romney has been very quiet on what specific cuts he make to pay for his tax cuts. Mitt Romney does not want us to know what his tax proposals will do to his own taxes.

    ...and this surprises ANYONE? Has he given specifics on ANY policy he will implement? The only thing he says he will do is repeal the ACHA (spending billions), and cut taxes (loses billions more). You're losing billlions there Flip......where EXACTLY will it come from? As long as you refuse to provide even tepid solutions at best, more and more will say "we can't trust this guy." Of course the sheep and lemmings don't care what you say. Their mindless loyalty is one set of votes you can count on
