Steve Kornacki's latest article: Ryan: Don't ask about my taxes, either

The Romney campaign made sure Paul Ryan was ready with an answer to the question everyone knew Bob Schieffer would ask in Sunday night’s “60 Minutes” interview: How many years of tax records did you provide during the V.P. search?

It was a very exhaustive vetting process,” Ryan responded. “It’s a confidential vetting process, so there were several years. But I’m going to release the same amount of years that Governor Romney has.”

And that would be how many, Schieffer asked?

“Two. I’m going to be releasing two, which is what he’s releasing. What I hear from people around this country – they’re not asking, ‘Where are the tax returns?’ They’re asking where the jobs are. Where’s the economic growth? Those are the issues that matter.
