In 2010, he made $21,646,507 and paid under 14% in taxes. All calculations on the site are based on that figure. We would use a more recent year or an average of other years, but he won’t release any more tax returns.
That last part is no longer true, as he released his 2011 tax returns. Still, it would be nice to see his returns from the years during which he wasn’t running for office, for Pete’s sake.
And if the Hispanic voting bloc becomes as committed to the Democrats as the African American voting bloc has in the past, why we’re in trouble as a party and, I think, as a nation.

It is true that the combined bank accounts, real estate holdings, dressage horses, and assets of Willard Mitt Romney far exceed those of his father, George Romney, and that this was true after Mitt went into consulting in the 1970s. But for him to say he inherited nothing is perhaps the least self-aware comment Mitt Romney uttered at that posh Boca Raton estate.
Mitt Romney literally has no concept of how normal people go through life.
