My federal tax rate is in the 28% range.
That’s more than twice that of Romney, who sounded proud when he proclaimed that his was never lower than 13%. I am baffled how Romney can think this is good.
The last time I paid less than 13% taxes was when I was in college and made $3,500 a year digging ditches, painting houses and patching roofs on the side. I think I got a $75 refund that year.
I am not wealthy. Romney is rumored to be worth half a billion dollars.
Do I think “the wealthy” should pay more taxes?
