Mitt Romney accused of blatant tithing (PHOTO!)


Seriously ABC News?

How dare he??!??!?!!!?!?!??!?!  SCANDAL!


By the way, also from ABC News--you get this gem:

On Tuesday, Romney disclosed that he has been paying a far lower percentage in taxes than most Americans, around 15 percent of his annual earnings.

Ummmm...actually no.  Most Americans do NOT pay a "far lower percentage" at all.  As Noel Sheppard points out with fancy charts to back it up:

That means as a function of AGI - which is typically how folks look at taxes - if Romney pays 15 percent as he stated, he's paying a higher rate than 97 percent of his fellow citizens.

This is a far cry from what media representatives have been saying since his admission.

Even measuring this by taxable income, Romney is still paying more than 87 percent of filers.
