Revealing the Real Mitt Romney

Last week, we asked you to help us reveal the real Mitt Romney.  As the country responded to the video of his blunt and dismissive comments about roughly half of all Americans at a $50,000 a plate fundraiser, ADA took the opportunity to remind voters that this was a rare glance at the real Mitt Romney.  

That’s why we asked for your help to sign our petition calling on Mitt Romney to step up and show us some of that “personal responsibility” by revealing his own tax records!  We were pleased to see that shortly after asking for your help, Mitt Romney released his 2011 tax returns.  We now know that Romney made $13.7 million and had an effective federal tax rate of 14.1 percent.  What we don’t know is what his tax history is before 2010 -- before he was the GOP candidate for President.  Did he take advantage of popular tax evasion strategies or is he hiding money in Swiss Banks or the Cayman Islands?  Sign our petition and ask for yourself.  We won’t be satisfied until we know his real record.
