Just a reminder: we’re still waiting to see Gov. Romney’s taxes, like every candidate ever. The highest office in our land deserves transparency.

“Republicans spent 2 years asking Obama for his Birth Certificate, which he produced over and over again. Romney can’t even produce his tax returns. It’s a disgrace.”
