Romney is what is wrong with America ???

25 Sep

The Tax Foundation reports that the percentage of Americans who are net takers from the tax system is nearing 70 percent…

Makes 47% look like a pretty good number…

 Romney had an adjusted gross income of $13,696,951 in 2011 and paid $1.95 million in taxes, for a cool 14.1 percent.

14.1% Still not his “fair share”?…

The average effective federal tax rate for American taxpayers is 11%, according to an analysis of 2009 IRS data by the Tax Foundation, a non-profit research organization. For individuals with adjusted gross income of $50,000 or less, the average effective tax rate is less than 5%, according to the Tax Foundation.

So Romney pays nearly 50% more than the effective tax rate of the “average” American and 300% more than the “poorest” tax payer… and he has donated nearly $50 million dollars to charities over the past 20 yrs –

And Romney represents what is “wrong with America”?…
