He pays a lower tax rate because his income comes from capital gains, Maximum of 15%. He also donated about $4million (30%income) to charity out of $13million and only claimed and deducted half of that, on top off the $1.9million in taxes (42%taxes&donations out of income). Those are some pretty big numbers to throw out there out of $13million a year. Just because he makes more doesnt mean he isnt paying more. We shouldnt be mad at people for being successful, we should be mad at what the people that are handling the fruit of our success are doing with it. Anytime we set limits to success and wealth we are looking at Socialism. I agree we do need more options for presidential candidates, Romney was by no means my first choice but at the end of the day he is better than the communist administration we have in there now. I also agree that Fuel prices are #1 reason why are economy is in the slump. But the president can lower gas prices by several ways. He can open up the public lands that we own and allow the drilling and other forms of crude harvesting begin, also if you caught in the debate, the government is canceling contracts and leases given to drilling companies that leased the land decades ago that are sitting on it, for what reason is open to suggestion. But the fact that they are canceling these contracts and re-leasing these properties to new drilling companies at higher rates will come back to haunt us. The companies they shafted will take that loss out on US the people at the pump immedieatly. Also the pipeline that he blocked would create a flow from canada to our refineries and lower demand, simple economics, lower the demand lower the price. Reinstating the permits to the companies that have been evicted by the epa to drill off our shores instead of the Chinese and Vietnemese companies. These are just a few ways to knock a dent in it and get us back on the right path. Not bashing you man, so dont take this the wrong way i believe in political opinions. Just wanted to see if you knew about those things. Look foward to hearing from ya.
