    no comment on the following from the article? "Obama's effective tax rate is just above 20 percent — lower than many Americans who earn less. He has made tax-rate fairness a campaign issue..." Who is it that is insisting the more you make, the less you should pay since BO paid less tax than many who earned less than him?

    Oh, I know, that does not feed into mocking Romney.

    over 20%

    Romney made 30 times more, and pay 5% less
