Harry Reid, foot, meet mouth. It’s time to quit harping about Mitt Romney’s tax returns. Perhaps you should have silenced yourself when your claim that Romney has not paid taxes in a decade was debunked by the extremely right-learning New York Times Hint: For you dense lefties out there, that’s sarcasm. Too bad. Now that Mitt Romney has released a summary of his 2011 tax returns, perhaps we should talk about “fair share,” “caring about the poor” and all of the class warfare topics Harry Reid and his liberal cohorts are perpetually harping about.Thirty percent. If you don’t remember anything else from this article, remember that percentage. In 2011, Mitt and Ann Romney made $13,696,951 and paid $1,935,708 in taxes. Here’s the kicker. Romney donated $4,020,772 to charity. That’s 30% of his income. And people say Romney doesn’t care about the poor. In Barack Obama’s defense, he and Michelle donated $172,130 to charity in 2011, 22% of their combined income. The president did not donate more than the biblical 10% to charity until he started running for president, but I digress. Paul and Janna Ryan donated $12,991 to charity, 4% of their $323,416 collective income. Joe and Jill Biden donated a paltry $5,540 to charity in 2011 1.5% of their income of $379,035. I’d tell you how much Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi donated to charity in 2011, but what do you know, they both neither has released their returns.
