Today, 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.
Also there is a developing story coming into the newsroom. Apparently, there has been an attack on an extremist group’s headquarters in Libya. The attack was launched by pro-America forces who were angry about the attacks that killed Ambassador Stevens and three others.
