Republicans Governors Want Romney to Release Taxes
Many of the governors across the nation have a host of problems to take care. For example, the problem with Medicaid, nevertheless they are keeping at least one eye on the presidential election. At the recent National Governor’s Association meeting, governors were asked about the campaign of Mitt Romney the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
Republican governors were full of advice for their candidate, who comes from the same ranks as they do. One positive response from the governors was Romney’s economic message. They feel his message is what the voters want to hear and they lauded the amount of progress he has made.
The governors are concerned that Romney might not be responding to the continual attacks from the Obama camp over his taxes, his time at Bain Capital and his outsourcing of work. Over the past week, the top story in the campaign has been whether Romney juggled two jobs – Organizer of the 2002 Olympic Games and CEO of Bain Capital.
On Friday, Romney hit back harder than at any time in the past by doing a number of interviews and demanding that the Obama campaign issue an apology for saying he lied about his involvement with Bain while working for the Olympics.
Other governors believe that Romney should release his tax returns. He has only released one and many feel that by releasing them, it would put voters more at ease and they would not think he was hiding anything.
Republican governors also said the Obama campaign’s attack on Romney for outsourcing jobs was just a way to distract voters from worrying about the high unemployment currently in the country and the lackluster jobs reports that was released just over a week ago.
