Romney already released his. Good to see Obama following suit.
Mitt filed for an extension on his 2011 return deadline, the return he released was last year's and that was after weeks of refusing to do even that. The President has been releasing returns every year.
"A top campaign adviser to President Obama made clear Sunday that the president has no plans to chip in extra money from his own income to defray the deficit -- and would insist that the tax system itself be changed so that the wealthy pay more.
Campaign strategist David Axelrod was asked on "Fox News Sunday" whether the president might contribute more to the U.S. Treasury after the release of his tax returns showed Obama paid a lower effective tax rate than his secretary. The president and first lady Michelle Obama paid an effective rate of 20.5 percent on gross income of $789,674, a lower rate than the president's secretary -- who earned less than $100,000.
The 20.5 percent rate is also less than the 30 percent Obama wants top earners to pay under the so-called "Buffett rule." "

well, if thats what the govt accountants calculated, thats what it is
his 20.5 % on $750k is nothing compared to other fat cats who pay 10.5% on $750 million and who still complain
it just goes to show that the tax system is broken,
i remember a time i read in history books where we started a revolution b/c of taxes ......
since we can't leave, the only place is to goto another country where its not taxed to heavily
