Mitt Romney continues to get asked about his federal income taxes, and he still refuses to answer the question as to how much he paid.
Now, he claims he never paid less than 13.6 percent, but his answer carefully referred to taxes generally, not income taxes specifically. That seemingly keeps the door open for Romney having paid zero federal income taxes during 2000-2009, which is what Sen. Harry Reid says he was told.
You’d think if Romney REALLY wanted to move onto those topics like the poverty rate in the U.S. or nukes in Iran, like he says, he’d just release his returns, and get back to food stamps or mullahs-with-nukes. But no. Watch:
Bonus: Check out this grafic charting the Mittster’s 5-day evolution on Medicare. He moved from gutting the program by more than $1 trillion, to promising to restore $716 billion future savings under the Affordable Care Act.
That’s a $1.7 trillion swing in 5 days! It’s a faster flip than the one he did on the individual mandate!
