Dear author, a little research reveals that Romney's capital gains are only taxable by law at 15% maximum. Considering he paid 14.1% tax after donation deductions and tax credits, ($3 million in donations) I don't think anyone in their right mind can question his tax rate. Virtually no one in the USA pays the full tax rate due to tax credits and deductions. Since Romney didn't have income, only capital gains, which are most often reinvested there is little viable criticism here. The comment, "since more than a few Americans would have liked to pay the same tax rate as him. This presumably includes his running mate Paul Ryan" is not only a stretch, it's uninformed and completely inaccurate.
