ACTUALLY......Mitt Romneys affluence has once again surfaced, and I might add that it's not really complimentary. He has this affinity for sending his dollars to other countries.  He is a very secretive (or perhaps sneaky) man and it's believed he's not playing by the rules of transparency and disclosure.

There are recent reports regarding his offshore accounts.  Romney keeps millions of his income in the Cayman Islands, Switzerland, Ireland , Luxembourg and has invested more than $1 million in China.  I'm sure I recently read that if he is elected President, one of his priorities "on day one" is to start getting tough on China.  Humm?? He also owned a shell corporation in Bermuda.   An interesting fact about Bermuda - he transferred ownership of his secretive corporation to a blind trust in his wifes name.  Maybe this was to avoid disclosure.  Did he send his money offshore to keep from paying taxes?  One wonders just what amount of tax he would pay if his money was invested here in the U.S. instead of foreign tax havens.  It's not hard to believe that the reason he won't release his tax returns is because he has something to hide.  Americans have every right to know how he made his money, as well as what sort of taxes he pays. It's the right thing to do!

The American people don't know what he really has because he thinks he's too important to release his tax returns.  His golden parachute with Bain Capital still keeps him associated with the private-equity firm that he founded. Although he left the firm in 1999 he continues to receives large payments from them.  He revealed that in early June he received more than $2 million from Bain.

His campaign says Romney hasn't broken any laws - legally that is.  But is not breaking a law 'technically' good enough for someone who is running for President of the U.S.?  Romney is inauthentic, unprincipled, and has difficulty in telling the truth.  He's the picture of greed in a bad economy.
