    97% of America pays a lower effective federal income tax rate than Romney does. To hit 14% or so you have to have earned income ABOVE THE LEVEL that Obama calls "The rich"

    So you are rich or you are lying. And YOU DO NOT PAY A HIGHER EFFECTIVE RATE ON LIKE INCOME

    I do not lie, and I don't give flying **** what Obama says is rich. And I never said I paid a higher rate on like income. Really, capital gains should be taxed at a HIGHER rate than EARNED income. But see ya, I won't debate with people who call me a liar.

    MOre idiocy. Capital gains should not be taxed at a higher rate unless you want to kill investments in the USA

    I guess if one is unable to invest such spite would flow

    but your position is based on envy or emotion-not an intelligent understanding of reality

    and you do not pay a higher rate on like income

    so stop lying

    That might be true if she and others like her had not been edified dozens of times on the lies that the Dems spin

    since she has been, lie is the only proper description

    Bwaaahhhhhh, the envy card huh? Td, you are special. I guess no one invested back in the good old days of higher capital gains taxes? I suppose people will put their money under a mattress? I guess we will just have to tax income earned in other countries at an astonishing rate. Poor Willard, then. By the way, you're quite good at wording your replies to me, me? Not so good. **** you, I'm sure your wife won't. Unless, of course, you pay her with that amazing income of yours, because your sparkling conversation skills leave a little to be desired.

    Are you basing that percent on net or gross?

    If it's net, you are doing something horribly wrong and really need to seek professional help.

    Back in the good ol' days, there were plenty of tax shelters and it resulted in one opponent of ted Kennedy saying that he didn't deserve to help manage tax dollars because his business interests hadn't shown a profit in years.

    "The Rich" then and the rich now are all more than capable of hiding enough income to not pay tax and in fact live pretty well with the provable statement that they are in truth losing money.

    The higher rates in the past were balanced by the countless tax shelters provided by law. When Reagan and Tip reached their tax deal, there were no tax shelters. They were all eliminated Since that date, the additions to the tax code allowing devices for tax evasion have been added at the rate of more than one every day of the week including weekends, day in and day out for about 25 years.

    Pretty impressive.

    Our law makers are the most devious, bribed and corrupt, corrupting and corruptible snakes on the planet. There is no getting around that. We are at their mercy and need to eliminate all who do not promise to reduce spending by 10% or more.

    He asked for two years -- the same he is willing to release.

    As to your paying more than 13% Federal income tax? I doubt it. I paid a 4.5% effective rate on over $100K.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    He has until October to release the rest of his 2011 return. By waiting until then I think would be more harmful for him. He should have released his taxes a long time ago and it probably would have blown over by now. He make a huge mistake imo.
