Tax returns at heart of new Obama campaign video

Updated
 

A day after President Obama called for an extension of tax cuts for 98% of Americans, his campaign is once again slamming his presidential opponent Mitt Romney for not releasing more of his tax returns.

Romney’s wealth has remained a hot topic on the campaign trail in part simply because of its enormity contrasted against the global economic crisis, but also because of lingering questions on how he earned his fortune and maintains it.

A new Obama campaign video released Tuesday questions Romney’s refusal to release more of his tax returns. The Republican presidential candidate has released one year, plus one estimate year.

From the video:

Mitt Romney is defying calls to release more than one year’s worth of tax returns.

The Romney campaign response?

“Just take our word for it.”

So why is Mitt Romney hiding the rest of his tax returns?

The less than two-minute video uses cable news clips and quotes from Romney during the GOP presidential primary to make its point that Obama’s competitor is hiding something.
