I think people would like to be paying taxes… The good news is if you are doing well enough financially that you can pay a tax.
— Mitt Romney, attempting to defend the offensive comments he made at a fundraiser several months ago, in which he asserted half of Americans don’t pay any federal income taxes. If Romney is correct about Americans wanting to be patriotic and pay their dues. he should set a better example by renouncing tax avoidance.
