Roll Call -- Facing questions about why she and other top Congressional officials won’t release their tax returns, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) downplayed her previous demands for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to release his, calling the issue a distraction.
As recently as Wednesday, Pelosi had strongly urged Romney to provide further disclosure of his tax returns. But today, while maintaining Romney should release more documents because of “custom” and “tradition,” Pelosi said the issue was trivial compared with economic issues.
“We spent too much time on that. We should be talking about middle-income tax cuts,” Pelosi said after answering two questions about the issue.
The Minority Leader faced questions about the issue after a McClatchy News report showed only 17 of 535 Members released their tax returns when asked.
Blog author's comments - Quite Interesting how Pelosi changed her stance concerning demands for more of Mitt Romney's tax returns after she was asked about her own tax returns. The GOP needs to stay on offense.
The Obama administration has to be stopped while we still have a chance. No one ever challenges the left. They are allowed to run with lies about Republicans and are supported by the MSM. Only conservative talk radio is there to report the truth. The November election is very serious. It is about saving America and our freedoms.
