Buffett Blames Congress for Romney's 15% Rate - Yahoo! Finance (Bold emphasis added) I don't fault Romney for paying a legal tax either. Of course people need to have something to be upset about Romney so they have a reason not to vote for him. I suggest a better way to do that would be finding fault in his proposals for tax reform (changing the law), not in his actions of following the current law. I don't care how much it upsets people that he pays a lower percentage, the bottom line is that it is legal.
