    Oddly worded statement from Mitt's tax people

    He's not like us.

    "In what is becoming a bit of a habit, Mitt Romney managed to release some highly sought information Friday in a way that multiplied the questions he faces by a factor of, approximately, two gazillion. What he released were his 2011 tax returns, along with an oddly worded statement from his tax people, Price Waterhouse Coopers, saying ..."

    The whole issue with the rate Romney pays comes down to the fact that almost all of his earnings are from capital gains, which are taxed at a much lower rate. This is nothing that Romney has done wrong and it is not a situation where he has cheated on his taxes. The question we should be asking ourselves is whether the capital gains rate is too low or not. Personally, I believe it is too low, but I also do not believe it should be as high as the earned income rate.
