With Mitt Romney’s continued refusal to release his previous tax returns the focal point of a discussion about each candidate’s filings, the men stated in turn their positions on the documents. From indifference to guardedness, see what they said.
Rick Santorum: “Well, I do my own taxes, and they’re on my computer, and I’m not home. So — and there’s nobody at home right now. Until I get home, I won’t get them. When I get home, you’ll get my taxes.”
Mitt Romney: “Maybe … I’ll release them. Multiple years, I don’t know how many years … I’m not going to apologize for being successful.”
Ron Paul: “I don’t have any intention of releasing it – but for a different reason. I’d probably be embarrassed to put my financial statements next to (the other candidates’) income and I don’t want to be embarrassed because I don’t have a greater income.”
Newt Gingrich: “I released (my tax returns) this evening. We also released the little small charitable foundation we have, so that people can see what we do and how we did it and what our values are.”
