    stop lying, the buffett BS applies to federal income tax rates. Time for you to start paying 30%

    Romney pays more tax in a year than you will in your lifetime and you have the nerve to claim he doesn't pay enough?

    He claims that his total tax rate

    state sales taxes
    taxes on his smokes and booze
    property taxes
    FICA forced contributions
    gasoline taxes
    hotel taxes
    airport taxes
    internet taxes
    car registration fees
    fishing licenses

    etc take a larger percentage of his income than the tax Romney pays on investment income

    completely dishonest since the Buffett rule only applies to income

    As usual, you don't what the hell you are talking about. The Buffett Rule requires all those who make more than a million dollars pay at least a 30 % tax rate regardless of whether it is earned income or investment income.

    That is twice Romney's current tax rate on his income.

    In other words federal income tax alone while your rate is based on every tax you pay.

    no one in the middle class pays 30% effective tax rate on earned income. So you are lying again

    and most millionaires pay fa higher tax rates than the middle class and almost all of them pay more actual tax dollars which is what really matters.

    we already have proven the buffett bovine excrement is based on lies, dishonest comparisons and pretending to use effective rates when its marginal rates.

    give it up
