Seriously ABC News?
How dare he??!??!?!!!?!?!??!?! SCANDAL!
By the way, also from ABC News–you get this gem:
On Tuesday, Romney disclosed that he has been paying a far lower percentage in taxes than most
Americans, around 15 percent of his annual earnings.
Ummmm …actually no. Most Americans do NOT pay a “far lower percentage” at all. As Noel Sheppard points out with fancy charts to back it up:
That means as a function of AGI – which is typically how folks look at taxes – if Romney pays 15 percent as he stated, he’s paying a higher rate than 97 percent of his fellow citizens.
This is a far cry from what media representatives have been saying since his admission.
Even measuring this by taxable income, Romney is still paying more than 87 percent of filers.
