Trump is right — nobody cares about about his tax returns

ACA works to the advantage of young and old alike

APTOPIX Trump Romney

In what can only be a continuation of April Fools Day humor, a former governor from Massachusetts (2003 to 2007), native of Michigan, son of a former governor of Michigan, and an unsuccessful candidate for president of the U.S is being mentioned in the same sentence as U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch...
