He earned $23,425,316 and paid $412.18 in federal income taxes. This calculates to a federal tax rate of 0.0018%. How did Romney get his tax burden so low? According to his return, he had approximately $23,407,000 in itemized deductions. These deductions ranged from $78,923 for “Toupee Creators Unlimited” and $41,826 for “Spray-on tan services” to a $3.8 million dollar write-off for a trip to Las Vegas with potential campaign donors.

The Romney family also paid salaries to their numerous employees including, two yacht captains, three pilots for their private jets, two professional dog walkers, one toupee stylist and a “live-in contortionist”. What someone does with a live-in contortionist, one can only speculate.

However, the $891,064 Romney spent on an “EWS Donor Party at the Pennsylvania Mansion” might give us a clue. While the return does not indicate what “EWS” stands for, given that the deducted supplies for the party included “Venetian masks, alcohol, lubricant and various Egyptian leather accessories” it was most likely an “Eyes Wide Shut” party.

Awesome if true! What amazing political news. The people are really overcoming the tyranny.
It seems each successive presidential election is increasingly shamming. 2012 is an exciting time to be around.
Is Romney finished? Do enough people hate one suit (Obama) to vote for an equally evil suit (Romney)? Ron Paul? 2012? Very exciting.

Did you read the actual article? This smells like month-old cod. Despite my personal feeling that he uber-sheltered his income in past years and paid ridiculously low taxes, this article does not pass the sniff test.

I would believe a story about an Alien ship landed on the White House before I would believe this story.
....I really don't know which one I would wish were true, both would be sooooo awesome!
Ron Paul 2012!

Hearing its fake...

sources incoming.

It includes the Daily Show jokes.

Such as the spray on tan stuff.

I doubt the Daily show managed to get that right.

Source is like the onion, and whats sad is its already spreading through out the net as real...

I thought I saw it originally in breaking news. You're right, the OP was either not very observant, or a pot stirrer. Glad a MOD moved it.....


Thanks for validating my own eyes....
