So Harry Ried was Lying (again)

21 Sep

But that’s no surprise….

Along with the returns, the Romney campaign released a statement from Price Waterhouse Coopers, based on PWC’s review of the last 20 years of the Romneys’ tax returns. The PWC letter says that the Romneys have paid both federal and state income taxes each year, with an average annual effective federal tax rate of 20.20%. For the 20-year period, the total federal and state taxes owed plus charitable contributions taken as deductions represented 38.49% of the Romneys’ total adjusted gross income.

 

Looks like at least one candidate is “paying more than his fair share….”

Romney reported $13,696,951 in (2011) income, mostly on investments. He gave $4,020,772 to charity and paid $1,935,708 in federal and state income taxes. Romney actually paid more in federal income taxes than he owed….

Apparently Mitt has every right to point out that 47% of Americans pay no income tax….

Now can we get back to Obama’s failures on the economy and foreign policy…
