Romney pays the same tax rate as a family that makes about $50,000 a year. The fuck? “I’m proud of the fact that I pay a lot of taxes,” he sanctimoniously touts.
A bit of perspective: Romney, who at the moment is not employed, makes nearly $57,000 A DAY, bringing his annual income to a grand total of over 21.6 million. If he’s only paying 13.9% of that in taxes, where should the rest of the money come from? Americans who are receiving any assistance from the government, such as those on welfare, Romney says.
“Poor people have shitty lobbyists,” Jon Stewart of the Daily Show laments. Yes, they do.
