On Friday, Mitt Romney released his 2011 tax returns as promised. He paid an effective tax rate of 14.1%, and he made about 13.7 million dollars that year. Also released was a twenty year summary of his taxes dating back 1990. They paid an average effective tax rate of 20.2%.
Some are wondering why the Romney campaign is bringing this hot button back into the spotlight with less than 50 days left until the election. However, Mitt Romney did say he would release them.
President Clinton today said that President Obama’s re-election would be an “action forcing event” in Washington. This is something that has been said by President Obama, that after the election Republicans will work with him. President Clinton spoke about how the government shutdowns got everybody to work together. Most analysts do not expect anything major to be done until after the election.
Well, thank you for joining us on Twenty Twelve.
