I love hearing this... Why would someone who is only concerned with wealth work on the Olympic committee for free, and work as Governor for free?
Or run for the presidency, which pays a pittance compared to what he has and can earn in the private sector.
Because they look good on his resume to keep climbing the political ladder to the highest office in the land.
And because he made so much more money at Bain than he ever, ever dreamed possible, that he can easily afford to do so.
Greedy is not the right word for Mitt.
That is not the motive that drives him.
Mitt has screwed up royally and he knows it so he would stop at nothing to get elected. If did do anything for free, it's probably for a huge tax deduction on the other side.
Ok, here's a little food for thought.
He already did the work at the olympics, as governor, and as bishop/stake president of his church, for no pay.(his church duties were 20 hours a week of unpaid service, for years).
He actually did get paid for the olympics, but he donated it all. That means he did get a tax deduction, but only for the taxes he would have paid on that income. It is exactly the same as if they hadn't paid him.
Not taking a salary as governor/POTUS won't give him a tax deduction. There is no point in making claims like that, as they have no basis in fact.
Wondering why he won't give up the tax return for his Olympic time period? Why did his wife say that it would lead to more "attacks"?
Could it be that Mitt Romney has lost his understanding about the meaning of money and is now greedy for the power that the presidency will give him...and his cronies?
Because he has already been attacked for the current taxes he has released.
It's a non-issue, that doesn't affect the millions of unemployed people. It's a distraction by the left to keep from talking about the environment in America.
Speaking of the environment ... how about Romney's ENERGY PLAN!
Great idea. Let's create jobs, and ease the burden of gas on the economy.
Also, let's get rid of regulations that force companies to do the most dangerous kind of drilling(deepwater horizon).
Greedy is in the eye of the beholder. Some people think the pursuit of money by any legal means necessary is not greed, just good business and common sense. Others will not do certain things for money, even if it is legal. Some think Wal-Mart executives are greedy for working their employees 32 hours per week instead of 40 to avoid giving them health insurance (such as it is) and paying them minimum wage while raking in record profits for themselves and the company. Others think that's perfectly fine because it's legal.
I personally think our priorities are really screwed up, but then, what do I know? I make enough money to live comfortably and would feel greedy and dirty doing what Mitt Romney did at Bain, no matter how much of that money I gave to charity.

To be fair and balanced, here is my opinion on the Trump Presidency.Stick to the core issues that got you elected. Don't be distracted by the swamp that you were suppose to drain.Take care of the top 3 or 4 items in your contract wih America. The media and protesters be damned.They will come around...

Mitt Romney declares during debate that he knows (from all of his experience in business) that there is no deduction allowed for the costs associated with moving operations off shore. President Obama says that this type of business deduction does exist, and it should be eliminated so as to...

Would you vote to include pet expenses such as vet bills as a tax deduction, especially for singles?It's tax time. As a pet owner who spends as much to support a pet like a human parent does, don't you think that vet bills, care, education, etc., should also be deducted especially for...

Is it more benefit to have a garage sale or take a tax deduction?I've wondered this. In the past, when in need of cash, I've held garage/yard sales, but donating and taking a tax deduction always helps at tax time. Which do you think is more beneficial?
