Mitt Romney is a candidate for the office of president of the United States. He is deeply concerned about people on food stamps or welfare since they receive special gifts from the United States government. After refusing to reveal what he earned or what he paid in taxes, the man who does not want special gifts from the government acknowledged that he paid at a lower tax rate than the average American citizen. He made $21.7 million and paid $3 million in federal taxes plus giving $3 million to charity.
Mitt is proud of his low rate of taxes. “I pay all the taxes that are legally required and not a dollar more. I don’t think you want someone as the candidate for President who pays more taxes than he owes.”
Mitt, most of your income from investment gains. The nice Federal government allows you to only pay taxes at a rate of 15% rather than at the 35% rate. Mitt, you are receiving government handouts that you so deplore for poor or middle class folk!
