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?


Romney paid 14.1% effective tax rate in 2011

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.
