Romney's Taxes Paid and Then Some - Where is the Press
RealityBatsLast ^ | September 21, 2012 | Bryce Buchanan

Romney release much additional tax info today and the highlights are these:

*The Romneys paid almost two million in income tax this year (3 million last year)

*They paid an average of 20.20% of their income to income tax over the last 20 years.

* Last year they donated 30% of their income to charity – over 4 million dollars.

* Over 20 years, the average share of their income that went to taxes and charity was over 38% of their income.

Check out Obama and Bidens history of charitable donations. It was often way up there in the 1 to 3 percent range. They sincerely care.

Update Harry Reids response to the egg on his face: “He’s hiding something. He’s hiding something.” No surprise Harry. We wouldn’t expect any integrity from you.

Where is the Lamestream Media? Those left-wing apparatchiks are accusing him of "manipulating" his tax returns to bring his rate up over 13%. Just carrying water for Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, as usual.

Maybe Harry Reid will tweet that he is sorry....real sorry for accusing someone of not being patriotic and showing us ALL of his records. Now it’s time for Barry to show his cards.

My lib friends on Facebook have been filling that website with Harry Reid’s lies for weeks. I’ve finally blocked all their posts in the hopes of getting a little piece and quiet. Think they’re at all interested in the truth? Ha!

>> Where is the Press?

Where was the ‘Press’ when the Marxist scumbags denigrated the 1st Amendment as a diversion to the gross negligence that resulted in the terror related murder of a US Ambassador?

Wonder if Warren Buffet paid any extra taxes like Romney did?

Oh, stupid and silly me ...... Buffet still owes taxes going back to 2002.

In July Romney said “I don’t pay more taxes than are legally due. I don’t think I’d be qualified to become President. I think people would want me to follow the law and pay only pay what the tax code requires,” He did manipulate his returns to bring up his rate. He donated more than twice as much to charity last year than he had in all previous years because he knew he would have to release that year. But that brought is rate down below what he had said he always paid, so he could not claim all of hid charitable deductions. Sometimes people are responsible for their own problems. Of course the liberal Romneybots will as always find someone else to blame.

Subracting taxes and charity, Obama consistently retained a higher % of his income than Romney (which I'd suspect is true of years before 2010 as well). Also note Obama's paltry charitable contribution % in early years, before he started seeking higher office.

The headline reads tommorow;

Romney:”I don’t hink I’d be qualified to become President.”

Let me get this straight - He waived a substantial portion of his charitable deduction, a sum in excess of Obama's reported income, let alone Obama's paltry charitable deductions, and this is a problem?

The Muslim-in-Chief and the First Wookie have virtually no money for charity, yet they're gobbling up our tax dollars on junkets, extravagant vacations and greens fees!

Meanwhile, they apologize for an American citizen's exercise of his Right of Free Speech to their true clients - the Islamist savages who are bent on tearing our country down.

Don’t blame me for what Romney says. He is the one who said “ I don’t pay more than are legally due I don’t think I’d be qualified to become president. I think people would want me to follow the law and pay only what the tax code requires.”

I don't blame you for anything - you want another four years of the Muslim-in-Chief?

No? Then what the Hell are you going to do November 6?

I don’t want another 4 years of Obama. I don’t want 8 years of Romney. My vote was taken away when the liberals and RINOs nominated Romney. He was the closest they could get to Obama. He agrees with Obama on more issues then any of the other candidates. He had his staff start the rumors about Sarah Palin so he could run in 4 years. etc.etc.etc.. I am going to do a write in and vote conservative down the ballot.

The day Romney released his 2011 tax returns, Reid came out with more allegations--and even Fox was running Reid's comments as a streamer along the bottom of the screen for anyone who might have missed them.

Romney gave away almost half of what he took in last year, either in taxes or in charity. But for the media he shouldn't have kept any of his income. After all, he was already rich before 2011.
