Still think the rich don't pay their fair share?

By the way, the above data comes directly from the IRS.

So Romney's effective tax rate is well below his fellow one percenters, but well above the vast majority of American taxpayers.  Of course, all of Romney's AGI came from dividend income, which is already taxed at the corporate level.  Federal corporate income tax rates range from 15% to 35%. I'd say the government did alright, not only in terms of the tax rate, but in the tens of millions of dollars it received from both Romney and the companies that paid him the dividends.

As for Romney destroying companies and jobs, you're cherry picking.  You're talking about the companies that probably would have failed anyway, and ignoring the companies that succeeded.

Class envy is destroying this country, and you are certainly doing your part.

I keep saying this but I'll repeat it again: Don't confuse the plebeians with facts! They don't want truth; they want an easy 'evil rich people' scapegoat to blame their problems on.
