Sen. Boxer calls for release of tax returns

The burden is on presidential candidate Mitt Romney to end his secrecy and release his tax returns.

The American people deserve to know if Mitt Romney paid his fair share to help the country that gave him so much -- including the opportunity for enormous wealth.

Did he pay his fair share to support our military? Did he pay his fair share for our veterans, roads, and bridges? Or did he ship his money overseas to avoid taxes along with the American jobs he shipped overseas?

There is only one way to know. Mitt Romney should release his tax returns.

When Mitt Romney's father, George Romney, ran for president in 1968, he released a full 12 years of tax returns. After all, as George said then, "One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show."

Well if it was good enough for George Romney 44 years ago, it should be good enough for Mitt Romney today.

The American people deserve to know the truth.

In friendship,

Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator

What a disappointment to see an article from Barbara Boxer in the Rim Country Gazette???? I moved from California to get away from her beliefs that did nothing to help the State. I guess she forgot that she nominated the NAFTA Act that moved jobs out of the United States, approved by President Clinton...ask anyone about Manufacturing jobs and Barbara Boxer - truth hurts, can't trust anything that she says.
