Mitt Romney, And The Wealth Of A Statesman (Infographic)

By Greg Voakes | Related entries in Ethics, In The News, Romney, Taxes

As the primaries drag on, and the candidates make their cases for Nationwide hot button issues that effect their voter sway, a lot of us focus on the financial crisis that stares down on America. Mitt Romney, for example, has a tax plan that so clearly favors the rich, and from that stems the curiousity of his own personal wealth and how he himself files for tax.

Romney’s 2010 tax return has been quite damning of favoring the 1% – so much so, that this Infographic (below) was recently published to demonstrate exactly how wealthy he is compared to your typical millionaire, and your average “well-off” American.

  1. Jeremy Young Says:

    “I’m not concerned about the very poor,” Mitt told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien in an interview the morning after beating rival Newt Gingrich.

    He also said “I’m not concerned about the very rich — they’re doing just fine,”

    But his tax policy is obviously geared toward the rich, not just the rich but the filthy rich. So which is it Mitt? We know you don;t care about the poor because “They have a safety net” but you said you don’t care about the rich, “they’re doing just fine,” something about the rhetoric doesn’t add up. Either you do or don’t care about the poor, either you do or don;t care about the rich. I’ll take a stab in the dark here and say you are leaning ever so slightly toward the rich, is that safe to say? Apparently words in this case can be mixed and match. Apparently how you really feel and what you really intend are starkly different.

    Take a look at this video on C-SPAN: House Committee Ways and Means | Social Security:

    Looks like that “safety net” you were referring to is under enormous attack by your very own party. I suspect if you had the chance you would dismantle Social Security, so your comments regarding the poor are very troubling. I suspect your comments aren’t too far from the truth either.
