1. Can I offer a slight; but VERY important correction?
Current tax rate ON EARNED INCOME for a really rich guy: 35%.
This is signifcant because for the really rich guy, earned income is a very small portion of his taxable income ... mitt taught us that, or should I say would've taught us that, had he disclosed his tax filings.
But that said ... I could never run for political office; I wrote too many "controversial" papers and lived too exciting a life.
