These totalitarians will let nothing stand in their way to getting what they want when they believe it’s in their best interest (via Hotair):
WAPO – In the House, Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) is proposing legislation that would require presidential candidates to release 10 years worth of tax returns and disclose any overseas investments.
And in the Senate, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich) are proposing beefing up financial disclosure forms for all candidates for federal office to require disclosure of overseas investments, including Swiss bank accounts.
The House bill would also require new disclosure of off-shore investments but specifically targeted the tax return issue. Rep. Sander Levin said Romney should “set the example” for future candidates and release his returns. But then he said the law must be changed so release of tax information is not at the discretion of candidates.
“I don’t think there’s any question now in terms of the responsibility of the candidate,” he said. “I think the law ought to now reflect that responsibility.”
Despite the Senate, there’s no chance this is going anywhere in the House since they are in the minority. But I doubt the MSM will condemn this kabuki dance that’s just meant to put more pressure on Romney to release his taxes, as they condemned Republicans for voting to repeal Obamacare.
