    What person wants to pay more in taxes than required? Isn't that why there are tax refunds, in case you pay too much you get what you are owed. I can understand being upset about him paying a lower rate than most and doing everything in his power to keep it that way, but, really being upset over him paying what he is legally required too? As for charity, I don't think his church requiring him to pay 10% of his income and then him not paying more than that counts as charity either.

      Does it really piss me off that there are so many hungry people in this country, and the Romneys have more money than they can ever use?
      That's it. They have more money than they can ever use, but they look for every possible tax loophole to avoid paying taxes. They hide income to avoid paying taxes. It didn't bother me until I read an article about how very wealthy people hire lobbyists to lobby for those loopholes. And then I picture a mother starving so that she can feed her children, and the contrast makes me crazy.
