Can we get Romney to show his tax returns NOW?

I think its the great unanswered question that demands an answer because it could apply to many other tax evaders who are extremely wealthy and extremely unpatriotic. I'm pretty tired of powerful people getting off the hook by simply losing or leaving the Capitol. Too much evidence of possible illegal activity exists. I can't find any reports saying he should, but its the least he can do to show us he had nothing to hide.

"... the one outstanding question that deserves to be asked during tonight's debate, but won't, is this: Did Romney participate in a 2009 IRS amnesty program for tax frauds? .... As Matt Yglesias deftly observed, Romney was actively running for president in 2007 and 2008, so it's doubtful he was doing anything during those years "that he thought couldn't withstand scrutiny." But why not release tax returns from 2007 and 2008?

Because it looks highly suspicious to disclose returns from 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011, but not 2009. The American public would ask in an instant: What are you hiding?"

Also there is always:
"Mitt Romney lost the election because he spent more than a year crisscrossing the country and offending people.

To say he seemed out of touch with the majority of Americans is an understatement. Whether it was his infamous 47 percent comments, his self-proclaimed apathy toward the poor or his visible annoyance at the idea of releasing the extended version of his tax returns, he seemed to be boldly laughing at the idea that he belonged to the same society as those he desired to rule."

4. Imagine how many others and how much could be caught in the net?

I'm thinking up to a billion dollars in lost revenue by those who can easily afford to pay but opt not to.

7. I think this could be a true bi-partisan effort. The GOP is pissed at Romney right now.

Why not come together to get those returns out in the open?
