  •  gusty - Romney paid $1.9 million of federal income (0+ / 0-)

    tax for the last year that he disclosed in the campaign, 2011, for an effective rate of 14%. That's a low rate but nearly $2 million is hardly nothing. My guess is that if your income was Romney's tax payment you would describe it in another manner.

      It's the rate that matters.  And 14% is VERY low.  And that, of course, is only considering his taxable income.  If I had Romney's income, I would quite definitely not have a problem paying a more reasonable amount in taxes.  

      Poor, poor Romney.  My heart just bleeds for him because he had to pay nearly two million in taxes.  Not.
