    No time to work on any campaigns ...although I did volunteer in 2008 with my sons pediatrician. I lived in a conservative county at the time that was also the highest in social ills such as meth, child abuse and disability. I was there for a project ... it was heavy on Bush!

    What a response ... to my OP! Wow and those who "liked" this reply.

    No sorry ... no issues there! I am clean, healthy, well groomed and just out of my evening soak after a good professional day.

    So if Obama's narrative tomorrow is going to be to try to convince everyone how great the economy is, that plays right in to Romney's hands.
    Don't the stats pretty much show how it does effect people? I'm not saying that people are or should be jumping up and down and celebrating economic victory... but clearly the data shows that people are being effected in a positive way.

    she probably thinks because a little bit of her income is in the 28% marginal bracket she is paying at a rate higher than Romney. She isn't. Most of us making between 1-5 million a year are paying effective rates around 24%-the highest of any income cohort. those making over 5 million tend to be mainly investment income (most highly compensated executives have large amounts of capital gains or stock incentives as compensation in addition to higher taxed salaries)

    The Very Rich Are Different--They Pay A Lower Tax Rate - Forbes

    Taxpayers earning $1 million to $5 million, who get more of their income from salary and other “ordinary” income taxed at a top 35% rate, paid an effective tax rate of 24%.

    LOL I am dying of laughter

    and if you are talking about an effective rate NO YOU DO NOT PAY AN EFFECTIVE TAX RATE OF 28% so stop lying
    Hardly ...twice the percentage of taxes ...yet most likely a higher percentage if we include the offshore account income!

    I knew when I wrote this succinct factual OP it would attract attacks on me! ; )

    Maybe this is the one who spends $3,000 a year on birth control?
    WTF is with the personal attacks?

    You don't pay an effective rate of 28% so stop fibbing

    They're not attacks, they just don't believe you.

    I pay 33% in federal income tax. I have nothing to lie about. Yet, interesting this thread attracted attacks on me and my hygiene or cognitive abilities on Okham's Razor!

    Ouch! ; )

    I am kidding ... That is okay TD and VE I knew a few facts would bring it on!

    Congratulations on your 7 figure income! ; )

    So, you don't have a single deduction? No charity, mortgage interest, etc.

    I'll take that trade-off.
    I don't see how Romney could make things better. He and Ryan would just put us back where we were 4 years ago.
