Mitt Romney went on Fox News and managed to make his situation worse by refusing to release his tax returns, yet claiming that Americans would like to pay taxes.
Here is the video from Fox News:
Neil Cavuto pushed the Fox News lie that 47% of Americans don’t pay taxes, and asked Romney if the percentage should be higher. Mitt responded by telling America that he thinks they would enjoy paying taxes.
Romney said, “Well, first of all of course you’re right. There are a number of retirees, members of the military and so forth who aren’t paying taxes, and that’s as it should be, but I do believe we should have enough jobs and enough take-home pay such as people have the privilege of higher incomes that allow allow them to be to pay taxes. I think people would like to be paying taxes.”
