    The Obama attack ads say Romney made $20 million but "only" paid 14% tax rate - PROBABLY MORE THAN YOU!

    Yeah, well, that sounds impressive for those who cannot do the math.

    Twenty million at 14% is $2,800,000.

    Yeah, I kinda think Romney paid more taxes than I did.

    I ain't a fan of Romney, but come on, this is BS.

    Not to mention that the $20mil was all capital gains on income that has already been taxed at the normal earned income rates. Sounds good on a 30 second tv spot though doesn't it? Got to love class envy I guess.

    Thank God for guys like Romney. If we had to count on the 1,052 families mentioned above, we might as well hand over the keys to China.

    How about those who did not earn much, but got a "refund' of several thousand, even though they paid little or no taxes. Most Mormons donate 10 to 20 percent of their income to their church. How much did obama give to the muslims? obiden gave a total of $300 to charity last year.

    The above mentioned that received a refund but paid little or no taxes have a category all to themselves. It is called welfare receiptient. And Bama has increased their ranks exponentially,just in time for the election.

    I wonder how many of them sent Mitt Romney a thank you note?

    Joe Biden's average Charitable contributions were $369 a year.

    What a warm hearted, kind and generous human being.

    I'm going to send a panhandler to stand outside his house.

    Most likely 2 million of his 4 million was a tithe to his church. I believe Mormon's are supposed to tithe at least 10%.
