Obama campaign senior adviser David Axelrod explained that how Mitt Romney has handled his finances matters because it brings into question how he would reform the tax code in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday.
"I'm not suggesting that based on what we know, that he's done anything illegal," Axelrod said. "But what I am suggesting is that he's taken advantage of every single conceivable tax shelter loophole that we can see. And now is he the guy that's gonna clean up our tax code and make it advantageous to average taxpayers and the country? Or is he gonna look at it through the lens of his own experience?"
