Mitt’s Income vs. Your Income

How long would it take the GOP candidate to earn what you make in a year?



Mitt Romney released his 2010 tax return on Monday. His total income for the year was listed as $21.6 million, more than one-half of which came from capital gains. How does that stack up against your income? Enter your annual income below to find out how long it would have taken Mitt Romney to earn the same amount of money. (Don’t worry, we’re not collecting any data you type in.)

7. And he does it all while sleeping!

It just keeps rolling in whether he bothers to get up or not.

Can you come with ways to spend $500,000 a week? Hard to keep up with it all. Probably needs his rest. Best to not bother him with running the country. Just saying.
