Mitt Romney Bets Against America

Mitt Romney’s personal finances look “pretty strange for a presidential candidate.” That’s according to Vanity Fair, who released a major investigation this week on the Republican presidential candidate’s “murky” financial world.

His notorious Swiss bank account is just the beginning. As the magazine reports, Romney has bet against America over and over again. There’s his mysterious corporation in Bermuda, his funds in the Cayman Islands, and the loopholes Romney takes advantage of to pay significantly less in taxes than most middle-class Americans do. What does it mean for the American people when “careful analysis of his financial and business affairs also reveals a man who, like some other Wall Street titans, seems comfortable striding into some fuzzy gray zones”?

The story raises a lot of important questions, but the bottom line remains: Romney would be the first U.S. president with millions of dollars stashed in offshore tax havens.
