This post has been about Romney's effective tax rate on his Federal income tax. Your question cannot even be answered...#1, he hasn't released his income tax form; #2, neither you nor anyone else knows how much he pays in various other taxes.

However,IF his effective tax rate on his income is indeed 15%, it isfarhigher than the average American. Andthatis what Romney was referring to...as much as you'd like to spin it otherwise.

The median household income in the United States is about $46,000. A household with 2 children (single parent) and a mortgage deduction of $9,000 a year pays an effective tax rate of 2.17%. The median income of a dual-earner household with 2 children is about $67,000. Their effective tax rate, with a mortgage deduction of $12,000 is 3.96%.

You are completely 100% incorrect.
