Wisconsin Democrats Call on Tommy Thompson to End Romney-esque Obfuscation, Release Tax Returns
In a conference call with reporters, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate demanded that Washington lobbyist Tommy Thompson stop channeling the secretive ways of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and release 10 years of state and federal tax returns.
Secretary Thompson, who has made millions lobbying for Wall Street, health insurance giants and pharmaceutical corporations, has refused to submit to any scrutiny of his record.
"Multimillionaires like Tommy Thompson and Mitt Romney want tax cuts that will end up making them richer and that will result in tax INCREASES for the middle class, but for all their talk of taxes they won't show the people of Wisconsin their OWN tax returns," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Wednesday. "Secretary Thompson must show us his tax returns so that he can explain why working families have to pay out of their pockets so that he ends up richer."
