Romney Did It; Now Obama Needs To Do It
By Donna Garner
Romney’s tax returns indicate that he paid an effective tax rate of 14.1% in 2011. He also released a summary of tax rates for the last 20 years (1990 – 2009) which showed he paid an average annual effective federal tax rate of 20.2% even though Harry Reid stood on the floor of the Senate and in defiance of Senatorial decorum, committed character assassination by accusing Romney of not paying any taxes for 10 years. Harry Reid never produced one shred of evidence to back up his claim. Harry Reid lied!
Romney’s release also showed that he paid $4,020,772 to charities in 2011. By adding the total federal and state taxes plus the amount he gave to charities, the figure is $38.49% of his annual gross income.
Romney gave 13.45% of his adjusted gross income to charities over 20 years.
In contrast, Obama gave less than 7% to charities (2000-2011).
That means Romney gave almost twice as much to charities than did Obama.
“Okay, Mr. President. Romney has been more than transparent about releasing his tax returns. Now it is time for you to release your records. You know, the ones that you should have released before you were allowed to run for your first public office – the records that the rest of us would have had to produce before being hired for a job, before being admitted into any college or university, before being allowed to receive Social Security benefits, or before being allowed to get a travel visa.
We certainly could not have received a Top Secret security clearance without releasing the following personal records. How did you get a Top Secret security clearance to handle the most sensitive security issues known to man? In fact, how did you get yourself elected to the White House? Was it because you spent some $5 Million to hide your past from the American people so that they would be fooled into electing you?”
