Sandy Levin Will Try (and Fail) to Get Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns the Old Fashioned Way

You almost get the sense that ol' Sandy is wagging a finger at Mitt and saying, "A real Michigan man offers up twelve years of tax returns. But in your case, I'll settle for ten." 

Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., the ranking Democratic member of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, plans to introduce legislation that would require Presidential candidates to make public 10 years of tax returns and disclose any overseas accounts.

But we clearly cannot continue to rely solely on the willingness of a candidate to disclose fully what the public has a right to know about the candidate’s financial record.”

"Your father…now there's a Michigan man."
