That's the rate Romney paid the IRS in 2011.

I paid a higher % than than in just payroll tax...not including Federal and State.

Somewhere stirs and madhatter are prepping insults about how libs/dems don't pay their fair share.

I thought that when they report these things, they don't include social security and medicare (what I'm assuming you're referring to as payroll tax)

also...

Over the entire 20-year period, the average annual effective federal tax rate was 20.20%.

And that's in a year when he knew he was about to run for President. His trustee also said he intentionally deferred $1.75 million in charitable deductions just to get his rate above 13%. He paid more than he had to just so it wouldn't look bad. Wonder what he paid in, say, 2000 and before.

That means nothing without knowing how that accounting firm arrived at that number. They released a statement without any details and Mitt stuck it on his website. Worthless figure. For all we know they excluded all deductions and used a weighted average. How about we get someone who doesn't work for Romney to tell us about his tax rate.

He's released more than he has to.

How about Obama releasing all of his 2008 direct campaign donors....something that should be federally mandated.

He's released more than he has to.

Yet not as much as he has called on his opponents to release.

    • Same people defending Hillary a few months ago are now drawing the conclusion that Flynn... and by association Trump... must be guilty of something because Flynn is getting immunity from the FBI. Works both ways. For the record... IMHO both Hillary and Trump are crooks.  If justice in this nation were truly blind these two politicians and their henchmen would be doing a long stretch in prison by now.
    • Slot receivers don't exist in 2 TE sets unless we're lining a TE on the outside which I haven't seen much out of the currently constructed Panthers. Maybe McCaffrey if he were to be split out wide but the Panthers usually keep a RB with Cam in-case Cam needs the extra protection and audibles the RB to block.  The Panthers would be best suited pairing KB with a speedster such as Charles Johnson, who's adept at running deep routes. Keep Howard and possible the RB (if not blocking) on short routes, KB on working the intermediate routes, Olsen running intermediate/deep routes, and Johnson running deep routes. That way Cam has a receiver on every level. All of this assumes Shula constructs a properly worked passing attack. 
    • Yes, that is correct. My point being Clinton was impeached and stayed in office. Almost everyone calling for impeachment of Trump thinks it means to remove him from office. He would have to be impeached and then found guilty to do that. The impeachment alone does not remove him. And my original point, no one was bringing up the electoral college back then. It makes no sense. Because the popular would surely rid us of corrupt politicians, right?
