What a joke! Funny how he is fighting for even more tax cuts for his bracket. There are so many tax cuts for him already that they have to really play with the numbers so that he is paying above his goal of not paying less than 13%. Like I said, what a joke. People who make $50,000 a year pay a higher percentage than he does.

20% of his income paid in taxes. 13.5% of his income paid to charities. 33.5% of his income paid to benefit those not paying taxes and otherwise disadvantaged. Still, the Leftist slimeballs complain, lie and want more. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. "The proud have risen against me; violent men have sought my soul."

Don't forget that almost all of Romney's income was already taxed once before he had to pay taxes on it again.
