    Would they have left it if it was their farm? A man was asked "Have you got a conscience?"
    He said "Yes, it is clean, I haven't used it." I guess Congress has a clean conscience.

    Candy, I am sorry, but we the American people do want to see all of the returns from 1999 through 2011. It isn't that Romney is rich, we already know that, it is the fact that the money claimed in the returns isn't the same as the money we claim. We cannot deduct care of a horse. We do not have Millions of $$$$'s in dividends and interest taxed at only15%. A great way to receive your income at reduced taxes. Did the returns contain the FBAR TD F90-22.1 form for where the money was earned in Switzerland, Bahama Islands, Caymen Islands? The government gave amnesty to filers back to 2003 and my guess is his accountants are busy trying to amend a lot of tax returns to provide the information.

    We don't want to wait, 1999 to 2009 is done and we want to see all of the information.

    Higher meat prices are going to have to get along without me. I still eat eggs, cheese, butter, and cream, but nothing that was slaughtered or caught. My stomach feels better already after only a couple of weeks on a meat and fish free diet.

    The only thing congress can agree on is going on vacation. John Boehner and his smiley side kick Cantor do not care about the American people needs all they want is their way or no way, these two are terrible they intentionally hold back on everything they are the worst, I hope the voter remember this come voting time, lets vote them out!
