Get over Mitt's riches
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I get really tired of being told that Gov. Mitt Romney paid less in taxes than others. He paid $1.9 million in taxes — 14.1 percent on his 2011 investment income of $13.7 million.

I'm not sure what percentage I paid, but I do know that in terms of dollars, Romney paid 160 times more than I did. He paid more than what was legally required, and he contributed $4 million to charity as well.

Romney is rich; get over it. Do you want a poor man as president, or would you rather have a man who knows how to be successful?

President Barack Obama certainly doesn't know how to succeed. Why would you want to continue with a man who has no clue how to improve the economy?
