    Of course Obama pays more than 15% on his income he receives as our President. He will also pay the regular income tax rate on book sales.

    I have no idea what investments he has made which have garnered him capital gains, but he will pay 15% on those.


    What makes you think otherwise to cause you to start this topic?

    Mitt is one of the two people that he may be facing in the upcoming election. For that reason alone, if I was him, I would make sure that I would pay more then 15% and release that info just prior to a key debate

    Very easily countered.

    MITT: If elected, I will have to pay regular income tax on my salary, just like you do now. But then again, I may not, since I plan on donating all of it to charity.

    He took risk and invested his money that was already taxed once.
