Frankly, Harry Reid is a misuse of valuable oxygen.
His claim here:
Reid referred to Romney's returns as completed by "accounting wizards" and charged in his Friday statement that the question remains, "what else in those returns has Romney manipulated?
Romney's tax rate comes from his investment income, which are taxed as capital gains, at 15% vs the 35% on ordinary income.
ANYONE who owns stock that has gone up in value gets the same tax break. Romney is doing what over 100 million Americans do with 401(k) and Roth IRA accounts.
