Here's the MATH showing how Mitt has a lower federal tax rate than "non taxpaying 47%ers":

Last edited Fri Oct 19, 2012, 07:47 PM - Edit history (1)



Though Mitt and Ryan are arithmetically challenged, here's the math any fence-sitting independent can easily understand:

- - - showing how a middle class entrepreneur pays 75% higher federal tax rate than Mitt (any other capital gains/carried interest/One Percenter)

- - - how Mitt pays roughly the same, or a slightly lower federal rate than a typical family in the 47% he falsely maligns as "not paying taxes"


and this easily digested information detailing the GOP assault on the Middle Class is just begging to be Emailed, Tweeted, cross-posted or Facebooked to every fence-sitting independent, relative, or co-working interested in the survival of the middle class:

Between now and November 6, the lies from the Fox "News"/RW Wurlitzer will be the most intense & brazen we have ever seen. How else can the GOP try to convince independents (as well as 90% of the Republican base) to ignore & vote against their own interests?


Since the corporate media won't do their job, let's take the math VIRAL.

9. Unless he taxes capital gains, all this talk about "the exemption bucket"...

is just a scheme to further screw the middle class, the working class.

Asshole.

At least a few Republicans out there get it.
