    more zeros than most peoples' annual salaries.  That's very substantial taxes.  After all, you have to have substantial taxes if you want a $77,000 write off on your horse.

    Mitt only thinks a couple hundred thousand dollars is lots of money if it is what he pays in taxes.   If it is in relation to what he earns, its not very much money.

      that multi-millionaire Romney gets more for horse welfare than most of us make in a year!

        $77,000. for Ann's horse saying it is a business expense. I guess if I considered my late dog Molly a business expense rather than a family member, I could have deducted over $6000.00 for her medical treatment from my taxes too. A deduction like that could have saved us lots on a large tax bill this year. To bad we all don't live in Romneyland.
