over 20%

Romney made 30 times more, and pay 5% less

And the GOP insists that the more your earn, the less you should pay.

I congratulate BO on his decision to make lager donations to charity than he has in the past. If I remember correctly, his charitable deductions were around 2% before his election.

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.

The burning question all Americans want to know; did Obama’s secretary pay a higher tax rate than he did?
