You will always pay a greater portion of your income for taxes on food, gasoline, clothing, real estate taxes, and almost anything you can name. A greater portion of your income is subject to social security, too.
It's all true.
But, so what? Romney worked for 4 years as governor of Mass, and accepted no salary; isn't that really a form of tax payment for him? He just left it all in the state treasury.
This endless spinning of who pays what percentage of what is a distraction from the question before us, which is, "what is best for this country, and what will enable us to regain fiscal footing"?
Hey I know! How about the govt spends less.
Also, the 14% is based on capital gains tax which is what his income is taxed at. He doesn't collect an income anymore so all he makes are investment payoffs. Meaning, the tax he paid is a double dip because he already had been taxed on it once. But facts like this are strange little buggers, aren't they?
