**Romney tries to sidestep tax furor he ignited By Tom Raum AP Published by DSNews 01/18/2012

WINNSBORO, S.C. Mitt Romney tried doggedly Wednesday to sidestep the political furor he had started a day earlier by revealing he pays federal taxes at a rate of about 15 percent, less than millions of middle-income American families. - This story

Does anyone beside me remember when John Kerry's taxes were published during his campaign and it was established that he paid only about 12% tax rate? And he owns a yacht, serveral homes and his wife is one of the richest people in the world! Where were all the liberals whining about him? Romney's income is only from 8 speaking fees and income from his investments. We all pay taxes on our income, not our wealth, just like Nancy Pelosi, the Kennedy's, Barney Frank and George Soros et al! How come rich liberals never are challenged on how much taxes THEY actually pay, not how much they want OTHER people to pay?

How can Romney sidestep the IRS?

Has Obama paid taxes on the billions he took from us for vacations?

Looks like the rich and wealthy commander is sidestepping.

Heck, you payed about 15% more taxes than Democrat Timothy Geithner before Obama nominated him to be head of the Treasury Department. He failed to pay $34,000 in taxes from 2001 to 2004.)

I don't feel any obligation to pay one red cent more that I owe come April 15th. Obviously Geithner took that philosophy to the next level.

Hmmm. Pagan paid more taxes than Romney?

Just think of all the tax money coming from Keystone, had the anointed one not blocked it.
