Mitt Romney is trying to change the subject -- by summarily releasing his taxes.
Not so fast Mitt -- how much of your "income" over all those years was subject to ordinary "Federal Income" Tax rates
-- and how much benefited from the much lower "Capital Gains" rates?
And isn't a critique Mitt has leveled against the 47% -- is that they rely on Government "Hand outs" -- apparently just like him -- and his 15% Investment-income rates?
usatoday.com -- Sep 21, 2012
Mitt Romney released his 2011 tax return this afternoon, showing that he paid an effective rate last year of 14.1%.
The Romneys paid more than $1.9 million in taxes on about $13.7 million in income, most of which come from investments. Capital gains and dividends are taxed at 15% -- a lower rate than the 35% on ordinary income such as wages and salaries. [...]
Ordinary income vs Investment income. 35% vs 15%
Who's "the lazy mooch" now Mitt? And who's been "living off the sweat of others"?
Some might called it "an Entitlement mindset", Mitt. Expecting those 15% rates. Year after year. Million after Million.
