My sister once dated a guy who's father was a mormon and a tax guy of some sort. He had a vanity license plate that said SLASHTAX or something like that. Basically if you were rich, he would help you put your money into various non-profits and charities(and churches), and take advantage of any loop-hole that existed, to help get your taxes low.

Considering Romney is a rich businessman, you can bet someone does this for him, if he doesn't do it himself. I'm sure he paid his taxes, legally, but you just know it's so full of off-shores, and bullshit charities, and church-givings, and shit like that, that his actual amount paid is very very low compared to what he's making. Hell, he'd be a bad businessman if he DIDN'T do this according to our current value system. (I think the whole tax system is totally fucked personally).

So, he can say that he paid his taxes with a straight face. Unfortunately for him, it doesn't look good for a presidential candidate. This kind of attitude is no longer respected in this country, it makes him an asshole, and (hopefully) no one wants a rich asshole for president.

No fair picking on him for this. If he had known he would one day be running for president he probably wouldn't have approved it.
What a fucker.
