Holy Tax Returns, Mitt Romney
That'll cure what ails this grand old country, but it may hurt the party. I know Newt vs. Obama would have provided for some good old fashioned sparks-a-flying debates, but I can't wait for Mitt vs. Barack and the president delving into the tax returns of the super rich.
How much is enough for someone who does not want to pay a dollar more in taxes than he has to? Where will the American people fall when it comes to this fight? I'm guessing Romney is not going to get too much sympathy from regular folks, considering NBC put his two year income (without working) at $43 million. Must be nice!
AFTER THE COMMENT:
Not sour grapes. I'm happy he's got enough money that his dividends and income from investments provides $20 million a year at least. Good for him. He didn't inherit his $150 to $250 million fortune. He earned it. I just wonder how this will affect his presidential run. Do Americans like the Super Rich enough to let them become president? Or do enough Americans not mind the pampered lifestyles of the super rich to vote them into the presidential office? I think these tax returns will keep Newt Gingrich in the race much longer than he deserves, based on his popular support.
