McCain: Two Years of Romney Tax Returns Is Sufficient

Monday, 16 Apr 2012 12:13 PM

GOP 2008 standard bearer John McCain said there is no reason for Mitt Romney to release 23 years of his income tax returns. Romney had released those documents to the McCain camp in 2008 when he was under consideration for the vice presidential slot that eventually went to Sarah Palin, The Washington Post Election 2012 blog reported.

“John Kerry only introduced two years; Mitt Romney did; I did. Two years is sufficient,” Sen. McCain, R-Ariz., said in an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation. “And frankly, I’m not sure that’s the key issue that Americans are really worried about.”

The Obama campaign has pushed for Romney to release all of his tax returns.

“We know that Governor Romney gave the McCain campaign, when he was considered as a vice-presidential candidate, 23 years,” Obama adviser David Plouffe said, according to the Post. “So they’re just sitting somewhere in a box or a vault or something, and they ought to release it, because obviously he’s released, you know, a year when he was preparing to run for office.”
