Romney paid about 15% taxes on his income. Obama paid 20%. Both are under the
35% tax rate that would otherwise apply to individuals with their income. Why
is Obama criticizing Romney for not paying his "fair share" when Obama
is also not paying his "fair share".In reality, Romney and
Obama both paid what they legally owed. Because the tax law is so complex and
written to reduce tax liabilities in certain situations, neither Romney or Obama
broke the law by failing to pay the proper amount of taxes.I believe
the tax code needs a major rewrite. Simplify it. Make it fair. Broaden the
tax base by making every American participate in paying taxes. Now
back to Obama and this issue of a "fair share".I find Obama
to be the epitome of hypocrisy.Though Obama is wealthy, he is
actually a poor man and a poor president.
This is just another attempt by Obama to deflect attention from his own dismal
performance and his own recent debacle about his secretary paying a higher tax
rate than he did. Obama needs to turn this campaign away from the economy to who
paid more taxes, me or Romney?
