I'd say he is quite the hypocrite... bitches how the rich pay for all of the poor people. Yet at the same time, thousands of millionaires are paying NOTHING. And how many more are tax dodging like Romney stashing money in hidden accounts? Oh sorry, it's not tax dodging if the rich do it, they are just doing what is legally required. However, if the poor don't pay taxes, legally, they are evil scum suckers right?Nobody's really talking about this slice of the pie, but Mitt Romney's "47%" who pay no federal income tax include several thousand of the highest-income households in the country.
The Tax Policy Center estimates that 4,000 households with incomes over $1 million ended up with zero federal income tax liability in 2011. Another 14,000 made between $500,000 and $1 million.
