Buffett Blames Congress for Romney?s 15% Tax Rate - Bloomberg



QuoteQuote:
He makes his money the same way I make my money, said Buffett, 81. He makes money by moving around big bucks, not by straining his back or going to work and cleaning toilets or whatever it may be. He makes it shoving around money.

Apart from the tax rates, I wonder if part of Romney's reticence is the Mormon connection - the Romney family is high up in the hierarchy, and there's the tithing and so on.

That $7mm donation on $42mm in income is a lot more than the 10% usually ascribed. He donates, mostly to the the LDS church, more than he pays the government.

Wow, now I finally see why Republicans are worked up about unemployment compensation payments. The "unemployed" Romney earns a median annual household income in about 19 hours. I'd sure take 99 weeks of that.
