    Such arrogance He and others at the White House have been. They have turned out to be liars and manipulators of the truth, along with the media. I very much want to see Obama's true records,Reids tax records for the last 20 years. All these people have lost their way and have forgotten who put them where they're at...and they are suppose to work for us, not the other way around. As far as I'm concerned they all need to be fired except for the ones that are known to work for the people.

    Limbaugh is infamous for molesting tiny little Dominican children.

    Still his Domincan capitalist friends love him, because he and his American RWNJ buddies drop millions of dollars there every year . . . buying the services of tiny little child prostitutes.

    I understand he's really into pre-teens and toddlers.

    Yes, that's sick.

    But don't shoot the messenger.

    He submitted returns for 2011 and a tax summary for the last 20 years showing he consistently paid taxes and donated more than he was required to. Now what?

    You "believe" this wasn't the case? Which facts lead you to come to your Believing that?
    So, prior to his 2011 tax return... What about the last 20 years?
    - In each year during the entire 20-year period, the Romneys owed both state and federal income taxes.
    -Over the entire 20-year period, the average annual effective federal tax rate was 20.20%.
    -Over the entire 20-year period, the lowest annual effective federal personal tax rate was 13.66%.
    -Over the entire 20-year period, the Romneys gave to charity an average of 13.45% of their adjusted gross income.
    -Over the entire 20-year period, the total federal and state taxes owed plus the total charitable donations deducted represented 38.49% of total AGI.
    -During the 20-year period covered by the PWC letter, Gov. and Mrs. Romney paid 100 percent of the taxes that they owed.


    Let's unpack these numbers. The Romneys owed and paid state and federal income taxes every single year stretching back to at least 1990. Harry Reid's imaginary friend is unavailable for comment. Their effective tax rate, on average, was over 20 pecent (nearly double the average effective rate in America, according to the non-partisan Tax Foundation). Does this qualify as a "fair share"? In the last two decades, the Romney's donated 13.45 percent of their adjuste...

This totally dwarfs the long-term giving of the Obamas and the Bidens, in case anyone in the class warfare camp is keeping score. But remember, Mitt Romney is callously dismissive and uncaring toward poor people and the '47 percent.' Overall, the Romney family paid every cent they owed -- and more -- forking over nearly 40 percent of their income to either the government or charitable organizations, including their church.

    Exactly! In their minds, Obama can do no wrong, and nothing Romney does is right. No college transcripts? No problem... Tax extension? Must be hiding something, probably didn't pay taxes or paid too little. Tax Returns released? How elitist of him to contribute more than he should have to charities!
    In the meantime, still no college transcripts from the guy who continually blamed is a video from youtube was the cause of 4 Americans dying, instead of accepting responsibility for his lack of knowledge or participation in daily security briefing. 4 Americans died because Obama failed to protect them.

    Did you know that if you move a company overseas, if it is considered an "investment",
    You can end up paying 0% taxes if your start up profits are % below your "investment"
    costs? Or, like Wells Fargo, because of their losses during the housing debacle, claimed capital losses so that they did not pay taxes in 2011. Nevermind that they did not do a thorough job of making the housing loans to qualified applicants with qualified credit and
    income. Gee I thought that was the job that banks do? And look at the banks, that even though the took government money for their losses, still treated the top executives to
    bonus packages and well, entitlements. That's right, ENTITLEMENTS....ARE YOU TELLING ME THAT THESE CROOKS WERE ENTITLED TO GOVERNMENT MONIES?

    But he won't. He was just trying to hide Obama's failures by pointing the finger at Romney with no prove. The sad part is so many sheep follow the 'Fearless Leader' that they will continue to believe what Reid lied about. I just wish that the real Democratic party would step back and take a good look at this Administration. The truth is right in front of them.

    Are you referring to Harry, "always a person of interest", Reid? Because there's no telling what, if any, taxes this guy has paid.

    Insider deals Harry has amassed a fortune since entering Congress. Here's a reminder:

    I got through the first three pages and Romney was truthful on all accounts. I have been over this crap with people for months. Just because someone can distort the numbers, take sentences out of context, and point the finger doesn't make them correct or the other person a liar.
