Warren Supports Harry Reid on Romney Tax Returns

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

 

Senate hopeful, Elizabeth Warren, says she's not afraid of getting in some political fights, demanding that both Mitt Romney and Scott Brown release their tax return history.

When asked if she supported Harry Reid (D-NV) in demanding Romney come forward and publicize his tax returns, Warren said, “I think this is an important point of public principle – that for every year he was in public service, he should release his tax returns,” she said. “I think that should be the arrangement. If he started in public service, started running for governor in 2002, he should release them from then on. He’s been running ever since.”

Romney has been under fire recently for refusing to make the returns public, yet Reid has also taken criticism for his allegations that Romney is neglecting to publish these due to a bad record.

“I just think it’s important to release the taxes. That’s the right way to draw the line. If you’re in public service, the public has a right to know,” Warren said.

Warren said of former Governor Romney’s track record, “I was not a fan.”

Warren was in Worcester celebrating the official opening of her local office. State representative Jim O’Day, state Senators Harriette Chandler and Michael Moore, and city councilors were also in attendance, as well as Mayor Joe Petty and Lt. Gov. Tim Murray, who both spoke before her.

Warren demanded that her opponent, Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) release his tax returns as well.

“I think Scott Brown should release his tax returns for all the years he’s been in public service. He’s been in public service for twenty years, then he should have twenty years of tax returns.”

Warren spoke to the group about the importance of the race and about their challenging opposition.

“The Republicans have lots of money, lots of organization out there, and they are willing to do or say whatever they think it takes, but I want you to hear this: I’m not afraid. The reason I’m not afraid is that I know I’m not in this alone. I’m in this with you, for you,” she said. “We know what this race is about, why we are here to work. We believe in accountability. I want to say this: I know it’s going to be a fight. I’ve gotten a taste of that over the last few months.”

“This is a neck and neck race,” Murray said, bolstering the crowd to make grassroots efforts. “This race is critical to the future of the country, and that’s not hyperbole, that’s true.”

“We know we’ve got a fight on our hands,” Warren said. “I will be out there every single say fighting for what I know is right. We all know exactly why we’re here and exactly how important it is.”
