    ************************************************
    Mitt Romney Paid 30%, Not 13% In Federal Income Taxes
    Thus, the Romney’s total income and taxes paid must also be adjusted up by 33% (1.33-(.25*1.33)=1) of the amount of their $12.6 million in capital gains income, or $4.2 million. After this adjustment, the Romney’s “Adjusted Total Income” is $27.0 million, and their “Adjusted Total Federal Income Tax Payments” are $8.3 million, $5.3 million more than reported on their tax return and 30.7% of their Adjusted Total Income.

    30% is more than 13% therefore to say he's not paid less than 13% when he in fact paid 30% is not a lie sweetie.

    Here's a lie, just so you know: Obama Reassures Voters He Loves America

    Good heavens, what is it with reading comprehension and liberal posters? Lie? What part of, ( from your link ) “I did go back and look at my taxes, and over the last 10 years, I’ve never paid less than 13 percent,” Romney said today. are you not able to understand? Where did he say, that he paid 13%.

    Congrats, this article explains how he gamed the system to pay 13% instead of the 35% many of us don't get to game out.

    The tax issue was always a red herring. The media/dems don't want us talking about Obama's failures while "representing" us.
