re: #329 OhNoZombies!

Hi all! Just a quick question, then back to lurkin’…
If Romney releases his taxes, and it shows that for x number of years he paid little or nothing, wouldn’t it kind of blow a whole in the RW mantra that the rich pay the lion’s share of taxes while the rest of us are whiny babies? Whether they do or not isn’t the issue, I think. It’s the perception given to those of us who are struggling to make ends meet check who check our bank accounts every morning to see if our refunds have been deposited.
Back to lurking… :>)

What it would do is destroy the myth that it’s exclusively lower income earners who comprise the 48% or so of federal income tax payers who pay net zero. The last thing the GOP wants is for red state rubes to understand the actual mechanics and structure of the tax system they pay into.
