Hello, and welcome to TKNN Reports. Now, yesterday Mitt Romney released his 2011 tax returns, and President Obama spent time today in a swinging state.
Yesterday, 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.
Today, President Obama was in Wisconsin for two fundraisers and a rally. This is President Obama’s first visit in 220 days. The state used to be considered safe Democratic, but Republicans have made ground in the state. Paul Ryan’s selection has only made the race closer.
Well, thank you for joining us on TKNN Reports.
