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.)

1. About 4 hours 51 minutes and 10 seconds.

I don't know exactly what my income is.

3. It would take me the better part of a century to earn what he earns in a year

Dear me, how will I EVER manage to make ends meet?

4. While I was sleeping one night, Mitt earned my annual income for 2010.

 

It would take me over half a century to earn what he earned that year.
Which would, frankly, be fine with me if he would just pay his fair share of fucking taxes!

6. Even though it's a huge amount of money, Democrats should focus more on the 14% tax rate

 

on that money. imho

The American people still like to think they'll be rich one day too, as deluded a dream as that is.

7. 10 hour and 6 minutes, but what gets me is


Most of us work until our backs or knees give out to make what he does in his sleep. He gets all the tax breaks. I'm not complaining about my taxes, I consider them the dues for living in this great country, but for gosh sake make the code fair. He should pay the same percentage as the working stiffs in this country.
